While Mehbooba puts conditions for govt formation, BJP wants PDP to take first step

Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir yesterday appeared to be headed for a longer spell of political uncertainty with both allies — PDP and BJP — putting the onus of forming the next government on each other as their leaders met Governor N N Vohra who had stepped in to break the month-long impasse.

Vohra held consultations with PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, who was accompanied by senior party colleague Muzaffar Baig, after which he met BJP leaders, including former Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh, here to seek clarity on the issue of government formation.

While Mehbooba did not spell out what she told Vohra over government formation, Singh said BJP will take any step only after PDP elects its Legislature Party leader and notifies the Governor about it.
