Jammu: Amid speculation on formation of a government in Jammu and Kashmir, Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Tuesday met state Governor NN Vohra, though he said the meeting was aimed at discussing administration-related issues.
"As the Governor is the head of the administration in Jammu and Kashmir, I met him to discuss various administration -related issues...There were issues regarding the Centre and state that we discussed," Singh told reporters soon after his hour-long meeting with Vohra.
He said that he also met the Governor to extend him an invitation for a family function.
"This was also a personal meeting as I had come to extend an invitation to the governor to attend a family function at my residence," he said.
On a question regarding the delay in the government formation in Jammu and Kashmir, Singh said, "There are certain authorised leaders within the party, who are holding deliberations and discussions on the issue of the government formation in the state and only they can comment on that."
When asked to comment on the reported displeasure shown by RSS on BJP offering concessions to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the core ideology of the party he said, "I cannot speak on the issue as I am not authorised to speak on these issues."
Meanwhile an official Raj Bhawan spokesman said that Governor Vohra and Singh discussed some important issues relating to the development of the state.
"Union MoS and the Governor discussed various important issues relating to the growth and development of the state and matters relating to internal security management," the spokesman said.
