Government formation in J&K may get delayed as the BJP led NDA government did not offer any idea towards the economic issue that its ally PDP had been highlighting for the last various weeks. Seemingly, sources said the government formation make take more time.
“We never said that the budget will make major announcements on J&K,” one PDP leader said. “But yes, there was a lot of media hype attached to it on this issue.”
While the two parties have been working to pick up the thread and restore the pre-Mufti situation, they have not been able to complete the task. Delay in initiating the process is being termed as key factor for the conclusion of the process.
PDP had flagged certain items from the Agenda of Alliance for which they were seeking a time-frame. But that is yet to be achieved, sources said.
While most of the top BJP leaders have been preoccupied with their scheduled assignments, the party has been feeling a bit of indifference at various levels too.
Both the parties, however, have been consistently insisting that they are still bound by the common minimum programme (CMP). PDP president Ms Mehbooba Mufti has reiterated that she would not like to have the throne and would prefer a peaceful J&K.
J&K is without a government since January 7. Indications suggested that new government with Ms Mufti as leader will take over after 40 days of mourning. It did led to her meeting with Ram Madhav in Srinagar but the issue that were flagged are taking more time than the party believed.
