The right wing Hindu nationalist Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) is indecisive about the distribution of portfolios amongst its lawmakers.
The PDP-BJP coalition government is expected to take oath of office and secrecy on April 04 after over two months long governor’s rule in J&K.
After it faced “internal rift” by its lawmakers, the BJP convened an emergency meeting in winter capital on Wednesday. BJP national Secretary General, Ram Madhav, is expected to join it, however, no one from the saffron party confirmed his participation.
“Changes are due in the new cabinet from our side,” a BJP office bearer told Kashmir Life asserting not to be named.
“The meeting is going on in Jammu this time. BJP lawmakers with senior members are meeting and portfolio distribution, among other this, is being discussed,” the BJP leader said.
If sources are to be believed, the indecisiveness on part of BJP has delayed the oath taking ceremony in J&K. “The BJP lawmakers, who were not part of late Mufti Sayeed cabinet, have been adamant on being given ministries,” sources said, “because of such issues, we have not been able to formalise the date of oath ceremony.”
