With suspense continuing over the formation of new government, BJP leaders Thursday met Governor N N Vohra to discuss about the government formation.According to KNS correspondent the BJP leaders including MP and in-charge J&K affairs Avinash Rai Khanna, State unit chief Jugal Kishore, BJP MLAs Lal Singh, Sukhnandan Choudhary, Kavinder Gupta, Sham Choudhary besides senior leader Ashok Khajuria, met the Governor to discuss government formation.Talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS) Khanna said that BJP is in talks with other parties to form a stable government in the state and has sought time from the governor for it. He, however, did not name any party with whom the talks were on.
“BJP wants stable government in Jammu and Kashmir so that all the three regions will be benefited. We are not in rush to form the government. We want to ensure that the government that will be formed is stable and works for the development of the state,” he said.
Khanna asserted that the BJP will form the government. “We are in touch with many people and are exploring the possibilities of forging a tie up so that a stable government is put in place,” he said and added that he is sure that within a few days there will be formal announcement about new government.
A senior BJP leader, wishing not to be named told KNS there is already some headway and some big developments have took place about the formation of government. “BJP can provide a stable government to the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Talks are going on. We are exploring all the possible options to form the government,” he said.The meeting of BJP leaders came a day after PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti met the governor. She had on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to honour the mandate given by the people of the state.
Pertinently, after December 23 assembly poll results threw up a hung verdict, no party has, so far, claimed to form government. (KNS)
