NEW DELHI, Mar 22 : Mehbooba Mufti described as "positive" her meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his Race Course Road residence this morning to discuss government formation in Jammu and Kashmir.
"When you meet the PM then the ways of sorting out problems becomes more clear," the People's Democratic Party or PDP chief said, making no announcement, but promising "next steps" after meeting her party lawmakers in Srinagar on Thursday.
Sources said the 25-minute meeting put the PDP's alliance with the BJP back on track after weeks of wrangling since the death of Ms Mufti's father and Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mufti Mohammad Saeed in January.
Prime Minister Modi, the sources said, praised Mufti Saeed as "a visionary," and said, "we must follow the positivity of Mufti Saeed."
The way for a breakthrough in talks and government formation in Jammu and Kashmir was paved by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. ?NDTV
