The rumours of a possible BJP government in Jammu and Kashmir with the support of the rebels from the PDP and former secessionist Sajjad Lone’s People’s Conference was finally put to rest by BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav .
“We are for continuing with Governor’s Rule in the interest of peace, governance and development in the state,” Madhav tweeted.
Not true. I will certainly check with d state unit n ensure that BJP keeps itself scrupulously out of whatever is happening in other parties in d Valley. We are for continuing with Governor’s rule in d interest of peace, governance n development in d state https://t.co/YnV3uyOn0n

At least five rebel PDP lawmakers in the state have openly spoken against former Chief Minister and party President Mehbooba Mufti.
In the house, which has been kept under suspended animation, the PDP has 28 MLAs. The BJP has 25 and enjoys support of two legislators from Sajad Lone-led Peoples Conference and one legislator from Ladakh.
For any party to stake claim to form a government, it would require support of 44 lawmakers.
