PDP keeps BJP guessing, floats new idea of grand coalition
In an attempt towards resolving the political stalemate in Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti will meet the state’s Governor NN Vohra on Wednesday to discuss government-formation.
“The meeting of Mehbooba Mufti, Member of Parliament and President of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with the Governor has been preponed to take place on Wednesday at the Raj Bhavan in Jammu,” an official spokesman said on Monday. Vohra had on Friday invited Mehbooba and BJP state unit president Jugal Kishore Sharma for separate meetings to hold discussion on formation of government in the state.
Meanwhile the PDP on Monday said that the idea of a grand alliance with National Conference(NC) and Congress was an option for forming a stable government in the state. “A grand alliance with PDP, National Conference and Congress as partners is also an option,” said PDP spokesman Naeem Akhtar. He said it was one of the options that can be explored to form a stable government in the state and also fulfil the aspirations of all the regions of the state.
