Former J-K Ministers asked to vacate govt. bungalows

Amid uncertainty over government formation in the state, the Jammu and Kashmir Estates Department has asked the ministers in former chief minister late Mufti Mohammed Sayeed’s Cabinet to vacate their bungalows within seven days. The stalemate over government formation in the state continues after the demise of the PDP patron in January.

Maintaining the suspense over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti had on Monday said that she would move ahead in this regard only after there is a positive initiative towards ‘agenda of alliance’.

Earlier, the PDP had indicated to continue the alliance with the BJP and said that it would go ahead with if the agenda of alliance framed under the leadership of late Mufti Mohamed Sayeed was implemented in letter and spirit.

Mehbooba had said that her party would take a call on government formation as and when it was confident that the vision and mission of the former chief minister will be carried forward and implemented with the clear support of BJP.

Former deputy chief minister Nirmal Singh had said last week both the BJP and PDP were on the same page, adding the agenda of alliance is still intact.
