Meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘very positive’: Mehbooba Mufti


People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that her meeting the Prime Minister Narendra Modi was ‘very positive.’

Talking to reporters after her meeting, Mehbooba said, “The meeting with Prime Minister Modi was very positive. I will call a legislature party meeting on Thursday. With the stalemate (in J&K) continuing over 2-3 months, I felt positive after meeting with Prime Minister Modi,”

Mufti, who arrived in the national capital on Monday night to meet the Bharatiya Janata Party leadership has called for a meeting with all the PDP MLAs on 24 March.

Jammu and Kashmir has been facing uncertainty over government formation since the death of chief minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed three months ago.

Mehbooba had held talks with the BJP president Amit Shah last week, byt her talks to arrive at a consensus broke down forcing to return back to Srinagar.

Mehbooba, according to reports, is adamant on assurances for time-bound implementation of the Agenda of Alliance — the common minimum programme between the PDP and BJP.

Meanwhile, the meeting of former chief minister Omar Abdullah, with Jammu and Kashmir Governor N.N. Vohra in Jammu, has left political pundits guessing particularly in the wake of the prolonged period of Governor’s rule in the state.

Omar, however told reporters, ” Mehbooba Mufti is rushing to Delhi is her last ditch effort to safe her party, because she has realised that if PDP doesn’t form a government on terms and condition set by the BJP, her party will split. If her party splits, she would be in much weaker position than she is today. Clearly she is trying to safe her party.”
