Mehbooba Mufti meets J&K Governor Vohra to Discuss Govt Formation

Jammu, Dec 31: People's Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday met Jammu and Kashmir Governor NN Vohra to discuss the government formation. Although, the PDP is the single largest party in the recent assembly elections in the state, but falls short of majority and the state will have a hung assembly.

According to reports, no party or combination of parties has so far staked a claim for government formation.

Mufti's meeting with Vohra comes after BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and state unit president Jugal Kishore had called on Vohra to discuss the political situation in J&K. Madhav later told the media that his party will submit a formal proposal to the Governor.

Meanwhile, PDP patron and former J&K chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed is reportedly been meeting party leaders, newly-elected legislators, senior workers and some of the members of the civil society in a bid to shape the party's response to the challenge thrown up by the fractured verdict.

A per the media reports, while the Congress has already extended its support to the PDP, the discussion is still there with the National Conference to form the government. Seems like, all the parties will be united to stop the BJP to clinch the power in the Muslim state.

The J&K elections threw up a hung verdict, with the PDP emerging as the single-largest party in with 28 seats. The BJP won 25 seats, with the National Conference and Congress winning 15 and 12 seats respectively.

An elected government has to take oath by January 19, failing which the Governor's rule will be imposed in the state.
