New Delhi: Mehbooba Mufti was unanimously elected as the leader of the PDP after the meeting of PDP legislators was held on Thursday. The signs of PDP forming a coalition government with BJP are very clear. Mehbooba Mufti has also been endorsed as the CM of Jammu and Kashmir by the party.
The Jammu and Kashmir CM post has been vacant since January after the death of Mehbooba’s father Mufti Muhammad Sayeed. Mehboob Mufti is expected to take oath for CM very soon.
Meanwhile, ex-Chief Minister Umar Abdullah has criticised Mehbooba on her coalition policy with BJP as Mehbooba had earlier said PDP would not form the government until Confidence Building Measures (CBM) are implemented.
