Jammu: PDP on Saturday termed as baseless the "rumours" that there were differences between PDP and BJP over the issue of distribution of portfolios in the new government.

On being asked when the oath-taking ceremony would take place, he said both the parties will sit together and decide the date. "We will sit together and decide the date for oath-taking. There are absolutely no differences between the two parties," he said.

Akhter said the two parties are set to meet the Governor at around 4:00 PM today and will stake claim for the formation of the government.

BJP had on Friday unanimously decided to form the government with PDP and support PDP's chief ministerial candidate Mehbooba Mufti.
