No special demand from PDP, says BJP

New Delhi, March 23 (IANS) The BJP on Wednesday clarified that there has been no special demand from the PDP for government formation in Jammu and Kashmir.

The BJP’s reaction came a day after Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti met Prime Minister Narendra Modi here and dubbed the meeting “positive”.

The meeting between the two leaders put the BJP-PDP alliance back on track.

“Mehbooba ji wanted to meet the prime minister and he has assured her of all help. He also asked Mehbooba ji to talk to the party leaders and decide on the future course of action,” BJP general secretary Ram Madhav told the media.

He denied that the PDP put any special condition before the BJP.

“No special demand was raised by the PDP. The PDP legislature party meeting will be held tomorrow (Thursday) and we will take action after that,” Madhav said.

He reiterated that the BJP has no problem in forming the government on the agenda of alliance finalised by late chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

“Whatever Mufti sahab left behind should be taken forward and we are willing to take it forward in the same form,” Madhav said.

The BJP leader, who is the pointman in the talks between the two sides, also said that if there are any issues with the PDP, they can be discussed after government formation in the state.

Jammu and Kashmir has been without an elected government after the death of Sayeed on January 7 at AIIMS here. The state was put under Governor’s Rule on January 9.
