NEW DELHI: With BJP emerging as potential kingmaker in Jammu and Kashmir, party president Amit Shah on Tuesday did not rule out joining hands with either PDP or National Conference saying “all options are open”.

“All options are open. The option of forming a BJP government is open. The option of supporting somebody is also open. The option of joining some government is also open. All three options are open,” he told reporters.

BJP’s decision will also depend on initiatives taken by other parties, he said.

The party’s Parliamentary Board in its meeting on Wednesday will weigh its options in the State and also deliberate on its chief ministerial candidate in Jharkhand, where it is set to form the government, Mr. Shah said.

“The poll verdict is a lesson for those who oppose our government’s agenda of development and change,” Mr. Shah said.

“BJP has increased its seats from 18 in 2009 to 41 this time in Jharkhand. In J&K, our seats have increased from 11 in 2008 to 25. We have received the maximum percentage of votes in the State,” he said.
