No dilution of CMP, nor any new addition, BJP tells PDP

New Delhi, Feb 18 (IANS) BJP leader Ram Madhav on Thursday said there will be “no dilution or addition” to the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) agreed upon by PDP leader Mufti Mohammad Sayeed prior to the government formation in Jammu and Kashmir.

“There will neither be any dilution of the CMP nor any new addition agreed upon by Sayeed. It is a very comprehensive document for the development and good governance of Jammu and Kashmir,” Madhav told reporters here, a day after holding discussions with Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti over the formation of the new government in Jammu and Kashmir.

He, however, hoped for a positive outcome to his talks with Mehbooba Mufti.

“Both sides are positive. I hope there will be continuation of the previous arrangement,” he said.

Madhav made it clear that both the alliance partners had not set a timeline for government formation in the state.

“We haven’t set any timeline for the government formation,” he said.

Madhav, who has been the BJP’s point person in dealing with the PDP for government formation on Wednesday evening met Mehbooba Mufti to break the stalemate over government formation.

After the death of her father and the then chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on January 7 in Delhi, Mehbooba Mufti had said the central government must take confidence-building measures so that she can head a stable ruling coalition in the state.
