Srinagar: The political deadlock over formation of government in Jammu and Kashmir continued on Tuesday as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said that the party is still not ready with any solution even on the seventh day of declaration of poll results.
According to PTI, PDP spokesperson Naeem Akhtar has said that the party does not yet have a way out to end the deadlock, adding that they are considering all options.
The PDP president Mehbooba Mufti will meet Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra on Wednesday for discussing government-formation in the state following a hung verdict in the assembly polls.
"The meeting of Mehbooba Mufti, Member of Parliament and President of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with the Governor has been preponed to take place on Wednesday at the Raj Bhavan in Jammu," an official spokesman said on Monday.
Vohra had on Friday invited Mehbooba and BJP state unit president Jugal Kishore Sharma for separate meetings to hold discussion on formation of government in the state.
The assembly elections threw up a fractured verdict with PDP emerging as the single largest party with 28 seats in the 87-member Assembly and BJP the second largest party with 25 seats.
National Conference won 15 seats and Congress 12. Smaller parties and independents together won seven seats.
So far no single party or combination of parties, have staked claim for formation of the goverment in the state.
PDP is holding intra-party dicusssions on possible alliances to form the next government in the state.
An elected government has to be put in place by January 19, failing which the Governor's rule will be imposed in the state.
