In the meeting, the party decided to explore all opportunities to form government in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Parliamentary Board also decided to send two observers each to Jammu and Kashmir and Jharkhand to finalise the names of the leaders of the legislature parties in the two states.
Reports said that union Minister Arun Jaitley and senior party leader Arun Singh will be visiting Jammu and Kashmir for the purpose.
In Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP emerged as the second largest party with 25 seats after PDP which won 28 seats. The NC and Congress managed to bag 15 and 12 seats respectively.
