Jammu, Dec 31: Mehbooba Mufti, president of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Wednesday claimed support of 55 legislators in the 87-member state assembly after she called on Governor N N Vohra.

Mehbooba Mufti met the governor at the Raj Bhavan in winter capital Jammu Wednesday morning.

We've support of 55 legislators: Mehbooba Mufti.
Mehbooba Mufti told the media: "We have support of 55 MLAs in the state. But it is our intention and effort that a stable government is formed here to address the huge problems faced by the people in the state.

"We want that the agenda of development and peace should be carried forward. We want Atal Bihari Vajpayee's peace process be carried to its logical conclusion."

She, however, did not clearly specify a PDP-BJP alliance in the state.

PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday met Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra and dropped hints that her party is not averse to joining hands with BJP as she said the poll mandate was an "opportunity" for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and invoked Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Without giving details of what exactly she discussed with Vohra, Mehbooba said her meeting with the Governor was "informal" in the wake of a "decisive but divided mandate" thrown up by the recent Assembly polls.
