No government until BJP assures on Mufti’s vision: Mehbooba

Srinagar, Jan 31: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday told her party’s core group that she was not averse to forming the government in Jammu and Kashmir but this cannot happen unless she has assurances from the ally BJP that her late father’s vision would be fulfilled.

“The core group meeting was called today (on Sunday) to basically discuss party affairs like its membership campaign and reaching out to people. However, some leaders and legislators wanted to know Mehboobaji’s views on government formation,” a party leader said.

“She told them she was not averse to government formation, but she won’t burn her fingers for nothing. She spoke about Mufti Sahib taking a big decision by deciding to form an alliance with the BJP but his dream remained largely unaddressed during his 10-month tenure,” said the source.
