"The chief minister is engaged in daily work so are ministers and the deputy chief minister. There is no tension," state BJP unit chief Sat Sharma told reporters in Jammu.

His remarks came ahead of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow amid the deteriorating security situation in the state .

The Jammu and Kashmir BJP chief also regretted that PDP's candidate lost in the legislative council polls.


The PDP had earlier accused the BJP of betraying it in the council elections, in which an associate member of the PDP voted in favour of the BJP candidate on assurance of a post.

BJP MLA Ravinder Raina hoped the meeting between Modi and Mehbooba will bring positive results for ensuring better law and order situation in Kashmir, restoring peace and speeding up the development works in the state.
