Uncertainty ends, Mehabooba to act

Uncertainty ends, Mehabooba to act 
Srinagar/ New Delhi: PDP core group on Sunday, 17th January 2016 authorised party president Mehabooba Mufti to take call on Government with BJP in Jammu & Kashmir. With this the uncertainty regarding the government formation ended today.

The decision to authorise Mehabooba, was taken in the PDF core group which met today for the first time after death of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. Meanwhile former chief Minister of J&K and leader of National Conference clarified today that his party will not tie-up with BJP for formation of Government in Jammu and Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir has been under Governor's rule since January 9 as neither PDP nor BJP staked claimed for forming government.

The meeting  was called against the backdrop of reports that Mehbooba is unhappy over a variety of issues with BJP, a party with which Mufti ran a coalition government for 10 months after tying up in the wake of a hung verdict in assembly elections.
In the 87-member Assembly, PDP has 27 MLAs while BJP has 25 legislators.
