Sources also point out that the BJP would even consider the option of sitting in the opposition if nothing works out. Earlier BJP's national spokesperson, G V L Rao had told Oneindia that the BJP would only be part of a government where it has the major say in it.

The BJP leadership would be meeting in Delhi later today to take a final call on the J&K government formation. Since the PDP is the single largest party, it would get the invitation to form the government and the BJP will decide for them to make the first move.
