JAMMU: The core group of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)  in Jammu and Kashmir is currently meeting to discuss the demands of key ally, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The PDP had earlier indicated that it won’t go ahead with the alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party if the agenda of alliance stitched under the leadership of former chief minister Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was not implemented in letter and spirit.

Meanwhile, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti has called for a legislature party meeting in Srinagar today to discuss the issue of government formation.

Mehbooba had yesterday said the party will take a call on government formation as and when it was confident that the vision and mission of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed will be carried forward.

According to reports, Jammu and Kashmir Governor NN Vohra has told both PDP and BJP that they must clarify by tomorrow evening whether they will form government in the state again.

The new government is yet to be formed even three weeks after the death of former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on January 7.
