Amid PDP president Mehbooba Mufti’s “reluctance” to take oath as CM of J&K, Hindu nationalist BJP’s Secretary General Ram Madhav reached Fairview to condole demise of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
Late Mufti headed J&K coalition government of PDP and BJP since March Ist 2015 up to his death in AIIMS on January 07.
Mehbooba is set to become CM, however, she has shown reluctance to take oath of office, so far.
Sources said that Ram Madhav, along with BJP’s Dr Nirmal Singh, reached Gupkar residence of Muftis around 5 PM to condole the demise.
BJP members are in a meet in Srinagar since this morning and Ram Madhav is set to join them this evening. It is yet to be known whether BJP forwards their letter of support to governor backing bereaved Mehbooba Mufti as next CM.
