His denial came hours after it was widely reported in the media that Omar Abdullah had met him, BJP president Amit Shah and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in Delhi.
In the 87-member House, PDP bagged 28 seats, BJP got 25 seats, National Conference 15, Congress 12 and Others 7.
If the BJP gets NC's support and that of the Independents, it can reach the magic figure of 44.
Omar Abdullah had also tweeted today morning. However, his tweet was meant to deny reports that he has postponed his visit to UK given the rapidly changing political dynamics in the state.
I don't want to spoil a good story but I haven't cancelled or postponed my trip to England. I was always booked on the 27th of Dec.
