Talks with PM will give a positive result says Mufti

Mehbooba-MuftiDeadlock over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir seems to have ended with PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday calling on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a meeting which she described as ‘very positive’ and ‘good’ in addressing issues pertaining to the people of the state. Mehbooba drove to the Prime Minister’s residence this morning barely three days after PDP and BJP had hit a road block with BJP’s chief interlocutor Ram Madhav announcing that his party would not be accepting any fresh demands from its erstwhile ally PDP. Emerging after a 30-minute-long meeting with the Prime Minister, Mehbooba said she had a “very positive meeting and a good meeting” with him. “We are seeing a stalemate for last two to three months over government formation in the state but today I am satisfied.” she told reporters here. To a question whether the stalemate has ended, the PDP chief said, she was satisfied with the talks, and that she has called a Legislature Party meet of her party’s MLAs on Thursday where she will discuss the next step on government formation. When asked further, Mehbooba said, “Naturally, when you meet the PM and have positive talks, the way is cleared for the resolution of problems being faced by the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”
