SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday asked PDP and the BJP to inform the people of the state the reason for the delay in announcing the date for the swearing-in ceremony of the ministers of the new government.
“Would anyone from the PDP or BJP care to inform the people of J&K why the date for the oath taking can’t be announced now? What’s the delay?” Omar Abdullah wrote on Twitter.
PDP president Mehbooba Mufti, along with her party leaders and BJP’s deputy chief minister nominee Nirmal Singh, called on Governor N N Vohra yesterday and handed him letters of support.
Though the BJP has assured full support to PDP, Mehbooba said other modalities like date of swearing-in ceremony would be discussed with the alliance partner BJP.
