A day after the governor, NN Vohra wrote to PDP and BJP asking them to submit their proposals on forming the government, both the parties will meet Vohra Saturday, to discuss government formation, sources said.
The BJP is expected to ask for some more time to stitch together numbers. Sources said it will inform the Governor that it has the largest post poll alliance in the state and is likely to submit a letter of support from independent legislators.
The BJP has been claiming the support of six of the seven independents who won. But Omar Abdullah’s National Conference claims it has the backing of at least two and the Congress says four of the Independents support it.
The BJP has won 25 of the state’s 87 seats – three less than the Peoples Democratic Party or PDP. Both are well short of the halfway mark at 44 seats and need allies.
