People’s Democratic Party patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, has asked all his party legislatures to seek public feedback from their constituencies on forging alliance with the BJP, sources said on Monday.
Ever since the election results came out on December 23, there is a complete deadlock on the government formation.
Mufti met his MLAs individually and asked them to take the views of the people over a possible alliance with BJP.
According to sources the MLAs have been asked come with the public feedback within a few days.
PDP has been busy in consulting its newly elected legislature since two days.
There are reports of the PDP leadership facing opposition from some of its elected MLAs over a tie-up with the Hindu nationalists who want “to win Kashmir democratically.”
Pertinently, the Governor N N Vohra has written to PDP and the BJP to explore options for forming a government in the state by January 2.
BJP is not averse to an alliance with the PDP, but the party leadership has refused to consider preconditions like strengthening of Article 370 and revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act, sources said.
