Srinagar: After two months of talks between the BJP and PDP on forming the government in Jammu and Kashmir, sources in both the parties confirmed that the two have finalised the deal and will soon announce the government formation.
Since the elections results announced a hung verdict in the last week of December, the PDP and BJP, formerly seen as political parties with completely opposite political positions and agendas, have been in talks with each other to form the Government, ignoring all the other options for coalitions.
According to sources, the two have had more than 15 rounds of talks during which, at many times, the two parties – in order to pander to their respective constituencies – behaved as if the attempts at stitching up the coalition were falling through. The talks are finally over for all practical purposes and the deal is almost done.
“Monday would probably be the last day of talks to formally go over things and you can soon afterward expect an announcement,” a senior BJP leader said.
Senior PDP leader and chief spokesperson, Naeem Akhtar, however, told that they were still in talks with the BJP and though government formation seemed in sight, it was not close enough yet.
Sources in the PDP, however, said that the deal between the two parties was almost finalized and an announcement on government formation was soon expected.
Former J & K Chief Minister and NC leader, Omar Abdullah, also wrote about the BJP-PDP deal.
