"But isn't this what Mehbooba said after meeting Governor Vohra so why the change of stand now?

"This is confusing. Now they DON'T want CBMs #strange (sic)," Omar said in a series of tweets.

He was referring to apparently contradictory statements made by PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and senior party leader Muzaffar Hussain Baig on government formation.

Mehbooba, after meeting Governor NN Vohra in Jammu in the first week of this month, had told reporters that she wanted the Centre to take some confidence-building measures before forming the new government.

Baig had on Monday told reporters in Jammu that the PDP chief had not sought confidence building measures but
assurances on implementation of 'Agenda of Alliance' between PDP and BJP.

Jammu and Kashmir was put under Governor's Rule a day after the death of incumbent Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad
Sayeed on 7 January.
