BJP to decide on extending support to Mehbooba Mufti as J&K CM


New Delhi, Jan 8: The BJP legislature party will meet today to decide on the issue of extending support to PDP president Mehbooba Mufti as Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir following the death of incumbent Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

"We are meeting today. A decision on this issue will be conveyed to you later today," BJP state president Sat Sharma told.

The PDP, which is coalition partner of the BJP in the state government, on Thursday wrote to Governor N N Vohra about its support to Mehbooba for becoming the next Chief Minister of the state.

The PDP move came following death of Sayeed at AIIMS in Delhi yesterday

The PDP president can take oath only after the BJP informs the Governor about its support to Mehbooba for becoming the Chief Minister.
