The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday welcomed Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Muftis election as the legislature party leader saying they hope that soon there will be an elected government in Jammu and Kashmir.
I think this is a welcome step. I extend my greetings on behalf of BJP to Mehbooba Mufti on being elected as a party leader in the legislature. Definitely there was a stalemate in the formation of a new government in Jammu and Kashmir after the unfortunate demise of former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, BJP leader Ravinder Raina said.
I do hope that after this meeting, very soon, you will find an elected government in Jammu and Kashmir. People have voted us to form the government and it is our democratic, political and constitutional obligation to form the government, he added.
The PDP MLAs earlier on Thursday unanimously elected party chief Mehbooba Mufti as the legislature party leader.
