New Delhi, Mar 21: After the BJP made it clear to the PDP that it will not accept any fresh demands, the chances of forming a government in Jammu and Kashmir ran into further problems.

However now the PDP is making an attempt to get the talks back on track and the chief of the party, Mehbooba Mufti is likely to hold talks with senior BJP leaders today.

PDP chief to resume talks with BJP

Not everyone in the PDP is happy with the delay in the formation of the government. Although Mehbooba may have suggested at her meeting with party workers that she was even ready to face the elections, the fact is that not all are enthusiastic.

There have been murmurs of rebellion with the PDP and not all are with Mehbooba when it comes to delaying the formation of the government or even facing the polls.

Meeting with PM

Last week when Mehbooba was in Delhi, she met with BJP chief, Amit Shah. However the meeting with Prime Minister, Narendra Modi did not take place as he was not willing to give into any more demands.

Sources in the BJP tell OneIndia that the PDP is likely to make one more attempt. If Mehbooba is ready to continue with the alliance without any fresh demands, then a meeting with the PM will take place.

For Mehbooba any further delays could be crucial. The Governor is likely to dissolve the assembly if no decision is taken by the second week of April. The PDP is also not in any mood to face the elections as the results cannot be guaranteed in its favour.

However for Mehbooba it is her party workers who are applying the most pressure.

She has to keep them together and cannot afford any rebellion at this stage. The party workers feel that a decision has to be taken. Be it elections of a coalition some decision needs to be taken.

It cannot drag on like this, although we are in favour of forming a government in the state, the PDP leaders have conveyed to their chief.
