Srinagar: People’s Democratic Party(PDP), in its first official confirmation after the demise of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, said, on Tuesday, that the alliance with BJP will stand, as per media reports.

PDP’s Dr Mehboob Beigh in a statement to the media said: “No disputes between BJP and PDP, Both alliance partners will join hands soon”.

He also added: “The day Mehbooba Mufti is out of grief, she’ll head government to take her father’s mission ahead.”

Speaking with regard to the future of the coalition government with BJP in J&K, Beg said that they would stick to the agenda of alliance in letter and spirit.

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav, on Tuesday, had hinted that the party had no objection to PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti becoming chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir.

“We are broadly in favour of continuing with the arrangement reached between the two parties eight month ago,” Ram Madhav had told the media.

“It’s up to the PDP to initiate the process of formation of a new government in the state,” he added.

Mehbooba Mufti’s father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, who had led a PDP-BJP coalition government in the state, died on January 7 in New Delhi’s AIIMS hospital.

Governor’s Rule was imposed in the state on Saturday after Mehbooba Mufti refused to take oath before the traditional four-day mourning period ended.
