BJP-PDP led government for J&K

After a prolonged period of conversation over the formation of Jammu and Kashmir government, the two leading parties in the state- BJP and PDP has reached to a consensus over forming the coalition government.

Addressing the press along with PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, BJP President Amit Shah said, "After polls in J&K both parties held talks, after several rounds of discussion a common minimum programme has been arrived at."

'J&K will soon get a Govt of BJP-PDP popular alliance," he added.

There has been a "significant" and “decisive” headway in the talks between BJP and PDP for government formation in Jammu and Kashmir, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said today.

'There is a significant headway, a decisive headway in the parleys between the two parties. In course of time, all these details will be shared with you," he said.

Addressing reporters, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti said, "Keeping priorities & peace of J&K in mind, also growth of nation, we have formulated the BJP-PDP alliance.'

"This alliance is not for power sharing but to win the hearts and minds of people of J&K," she added.

PDP and BJP, which emerged as the two largest parties in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly polls held in December last year, have been in touch for forming a coalition government in the state. The PDP emerged as the single largest party with 28 seats while BJP got 25 seats in the 87-member House. Both the parties held several rounds of discussion and kept all the details of the common minimum programme (CMP) concealed so far.

Amit Shah today assured that contentious issues in the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) had been sorted out and the same will be finalised at the meeting between Prime Minister Modi and Mehbooba Mufti, which is to be held in the next few days.

The swearing-in ceremony of the new government headed by PDP chief Mufti Mohammed Sayeed is likely to take place on March at Zorawar Singh memorial auditorium of Jammu University.
