Jammu: A month after parting ways with the PDP, the BJP is all set to form a new government in Jammu and Kashmir.

Hinting at the possibility, former deputy chief minister of the State Kavinder Gupta told MyNation, " I came to know about news of government formation. Governor's Rule is not a permanent solution, a government must be formed."

"The State and central leadership of the BJP will take a final call once we see a major development in Jammu and Kashmir," Gupta added.

A highly placed source in the BJP said, "BJP general secretary Ram Madhav, who visited Srinagar some days ago, met with Sajjad Lone and other rebel MLAs of PDP and other parties. He even gave a green signal to top party leaders to go ahead with government formation."

With 2019 Lok Sabha elections approaching, BJP's move to form government in Jammu and Kashmir with Sajjad Lone, keeping the PDP at bay, is an interesting development.

A sources told MyNation, "People's Conference's Sajjad Lone will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah any day after August 15 in New Delhi. After meeting the top brass of BJP, Lone will form government with BJP."
