BJP high command has deputed Madhav to reach Jammu along with Singh to assess the current political situation and elicit the opinion of party legislators (over the government formation), BJP sources said on Thursday. The crucial meeting will be held tomorrow in which all the BJP legislators and its top leadership will take part, the sources said.

Governor NN Vohra has written to PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and BJP State president Sat Sharma to meet him on Friday (to clarify their stand on government formation). BJP delegation will be meeting the governor on Friday and will inform him about the party stand on the prevailing political situation in the state.

The last time the BJP and PDP delegations had met the governor separately was on 2 February, when Vohra had sought their stand on government formation.

The BJP delegation again met him on 2 March, while Mehbooba met him on 4 March over the political situation in the state.

Jammu and Kashmir was placed under Governor's Rule on 8 January 8 after then chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed's death on 7 January.

On Tuesday, Mehbooba had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at New Delhi.

After the 15-minute meeting at the prime minister's residence, 56-year-old Mehbooba told reporters it was "very positive" and "good" in addressing issues pertaining to the people of the state and that she was "very satisfied".
