PDP-BJP alliance
Srinagar: A delegation of BJP leaders headed by general secretary Ram Madhav is likely to meet soon to break the deadlock over government formation in Jammu & Kashmir. 
The delegation is expected to hold talks with PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti after a prayer meeting for former CM Mufti Mohd Sayeed. 
As per BJP sources, differences between PDP and BJP have narrowed down and the party would issue fresh assurances with Mufti soon.
It’s important to note that impasse in Jammu after Mufti’s demise is a result of difference between the two parties over some of the core issues.
Earlier, Mehbooba Mufti had said that her father “took a courageous but unpopular decision” and called for assurances from the BJP for implementation of the “agenda of alliance”, the common minimum programme drafted by the two coalition partners. 
She had also said that the decision to enter into an alliance with BJP had not gone down well with the voters and PDP is likely to suffer in the next elections.
Mufti Mohammed Sayeed passed away in New Delhi on January 7, and the state was put under Governor's Rule two days after his demise.
If the talks between the two parties end on a good note, we might finally see an end to the impasse in the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
