JAMMU AND KASHMIR
JAMMU, MARCH 30: After the submission of letter of support by the BJP, the two parties have again reached an impasse and it is likely that PDP will not accept the demand of BJP of more portfolios in the cabinet.
If sources are to be believed, PDP has told
the BJP leadership that it is not going to concede to the demand of more representation in the cabinet than it had at the time of Mufti Sayeed’s government. Sources said that party has talked to the central leadership of the BJP as well.
Senior PDP leader said that the party especially its local leadership must realise that it was the BJP top leadership which was interested in re-stitching an alliance with us.
The BJP especially its local leadership knows that it may have to face criticism if it gets the same number of cabinet berths which it had last time.
“It is not for anything that BJP’s central leadership made such statements, they realise the fact that being in the government for the first time is itself not a small thing. We are clear on this account and local BJP leadership should realise ground reality of such situations.” said a senior PDP leader.
