With just a couple of days left for swearing-in of new government in Jammu and Kashmir, BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav and In-charge State Affairs Avinash Rai Khanna today held a closed door meeting with party's state leaders here and conveyed the decisions taken regarding portfolios to be allotted to new ministers.
"The central leaders deputed by the party high command held a meeting with the core group members late in the evening," reliable sources informed Greater Kashmir.
"It was informed in the meeting that most of the ministers in the previous government led by Mufti Muhammad Sayeed would be retained in the new government but a couple of them may be dropped," a senior leader of the party disclosed, while wishing anonymity.
After the meeting, Madhav said, "All issues have been sorted out between the parties."
"The decision regarding party's likely ministers in the new government and their portfolios was taken at New Delhi in consultation with top leaders of the state," the senior leader said.
He said, "The members were told that whatever the issues were there between both the parties have been resolved, and party is of the view that new government should be formed without any further delay on the basis of Agenda of Alliance."
The performance of the former ministers was also considered while deciding the new ministers and their portfolios. "Most of the ministers in the new government from party's quota are likely to retain their portfolios," he said.
Madhav immediately left for New Delhi after the meeting while Khanna is still in Jammu in connection with party's state executive meet scheduled for Saturday.
BJP General Secretary (Organization), Ashok Koul however said that the decision regarding party's ministers and their portfolios would be finalized on Saturday.
