New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday called on People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti to reveal her intentions first on forming a coalition for the state government and added that no condition had been set by the PDP before the Centre so far.
“Mehbooba Mufti ji needs to show us her cards first, and then only can we talk about taking the next step. The core committee meeting of state unit was held today. Our state president will meet the governor tomorrow and put forth the party’s view, however, we haven’t received any conditions yet,” BJP general secretary Ram Madhav told the media here.
He asserted the BJP is committed to the effective implementation of common minimum programme in ‘letter and spirit’ which was started together by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Mehbooba Mufti.
Earlier today, Mehbooba Mufti called a legislature party meeting today to discuss the issue of government formation.
The PDP has indicated that it won’t go ahead with the alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party if the agenda of alliance stitched under the leadership of former chief minister Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was not implemented in letter and spirit.
Addressing party workers in Srinagar yesterday, Mehbooba Mufti said the party will take a call on government formation as and when it was confident that the vision and mission of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed will be carried forward.
The new government is yet to be formed even three weeks after the death of former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on January 7. (ANI)
