“Mehbooba ji wanted to meet the prime minister and he has assured her of all help. He also asked Mehbooba ji to talk to the party leaders and decide on the future course of action,” BJP secretary general Ram Madhav told reporters in New Delhi.

He denied that the PDP put “any special condition” before the BJP. “No special demand was raised by the PDP. The PDP legislature party meeting will be held tomorrow (Thursday) and we will take action after that,” Madhav said.

Madhav had last week categorically said that “BJP can’t accept new demands from PDP”, however, PDP had clarified that it sought “time bound implementation of Agenda of Alliance”.

He reiterated that the BJP has no problem in forming the government on the Agenda of Alliance finalised by late chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

“Whatever Mufti sahab left behind should be taken forward and we are willing to take it forward in the same form,” Madhav said.
