The BJP is likely to face more trouble in the course of government formation as PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti is in no mood to relent on the Agenda of Alliance. PDP wants firm assurance from the Modi government on transfer of power projects and liberal funding for development of Jammu and Kashmir something about which the centre should not have a problem. What has caused loss of face for the BJP is that while Mehbooba has shown no hurry to become the CM, it’s the BJP leaders, and their ministers who have shown restlessness. People in Jammu and BJP watchers also aver that in pursuit of power the party has given too much on ideology, and also in it’s share of power in which PDP has gained the majority share.
