Jammu, Feb 15: BJP president Amit Shah on Monday authorised Ram Madhav to fly to Jammu and Kashmir to finalise government formation arrangements with PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti, top party sources said.
“Amit Shah at a meeting in New Delhi on Monday authorised general secretary and party in charge of J&K affairs Ram Madhav to meet PDP president Mehbooba Mufti to finalise arrangements with her for government formation in the state”, top Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sources told IANS here.
There has been a political stalemate in Jammu and Kashmir after Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti told reporters that she needed the announcement of “confidence building measures” from the central government to head a stable coalition with the BJP.
The prospects of a future PDP-BJP ruling alliance headed by Mehbooba Mufti will now depend on the outcome of her parleys with Ram Madhav.
BJP sources said the party high command was interested in continuing the alliance with the PDP and they expected flexibility from the PDP president during talks with Ram Madhav to ensure that the state is saved from being pushed into another election in less than two years.
Ram Madhav is expected to fly to Srinagar on Tuesday.
