Govt in JK soon after Delhi poll result: BJP

The talks, they said, would be held soon after the Delhi Assembly election results are out.

The BharatiyaJanata Party (BJP) has decided to constitute two separate teams of state and central leaders to hold the “formal structural dialogue” with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on government formation in J&K, sources said.

The talks, they said, would be held soon after the Delhi Assembly election results are out.

BJP sources said after “successful track-II dialogue with PDP over government formation  andRajyaSabha elections, the party is now mulling to form two separate teams to hold structural dialogue with PDP and also finalize the Common Minimum Programme (CMP).”

Sources said one state-level team shall comprise state BJP president, Ladakh MP, two MLAs and J&K’s BJP in-charge while the central-level team may include Union Finance Minister ArunJaitley, Union Health Minister J P Nadda and Party’s General Secretary Ram Madhav.

Sources said the party president Amit Shah and Prime Minister NarendraModi may also    intervene “if the two parties (PDP-BJP) don’t reach a consensus over the CMP.”

When contacted, AvinashRai Khanna, J&K’s BJP in-charge said his party was very close to give a stable government to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

He said the process of talks between PDP over government formation was delayed a little due to New Delhi polls and after the poll result on February 10, “the talks will resume.”

Khanna admitted the party would constitute two teams to proceed with the structural dialogue and finalize the CMP with PDP soon.
