NEW DELHI: Terming the meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the government formation in Jammu and Kashmir as a ‘positive’ one, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said a final call on the matter would be taken after the legislature’s meet on March 24.
“I am satisfied after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It was a very positive meeting. A stalemate was going on for a long time. A final call will be taken after the legislature meet on Thursday,” Mehbooba told the media here.
Mufti met Prime Minister Modi at the 7 Race Course Road today, in a last ditch effort to renew a partnership between the PDP and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form government in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mufti, who reached New Delhi yesterday for talks with the BJP leadership, has called for a legislature party meeting on March 24.
The state is under Governor’s rule since the death of chief minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed three months back.
However, as per reports, her meeting with the Prime Minister failed to take place and she returned to Srinagar.
PDP-BJP negotiations had hit a roadblock last week when Mehbooba returned to Srinagar on Saturday morning as her expected meeting with Prime Minister Modi to seal a deal did not happen.
