BJP's three-member panel from its state's core group yesterday rushed to New Delhi and held consultations with central leadership before meeting the Governor to discuss  government formation.

This is the second core group meeting in past 24 hours. "At 4 PM, we will hold a meeting of core group to discuss the issue. The panel which had gone to New Delhi for meeting with central leadership will brief us", BJP's General Secretary (Organisation) Ashok Koul told PTI.

He said that after the meeting, the BJP team will meet the Governor over the issue. Replying to a question on uncertainty over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir, Koul said, "From our side there is positivity and we feel the same from other side.

There is no uncertainty from BJP side". He maintained that the party is sticking to the "agenda of alliance" but "adamancy is from PDP".

A three-member panel of former Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh, state BJP Chief Sat Sharma and Jammu MP Jugal  Kishore had gone to New Delhi yesterday soon after core  group meeting here and discussed the issue with central  leadership last evening.

After tough talk by PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, BJP yesterday made it clear that it will not come under any pressure over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir even as it is  committed to the common minimum programme chalked out last  year.

On the eve of meeting Governor NN Vohra to convey its stand, BJP put the onus of carrying forward the alliance on PDP, saying Mehbooba has to take a call on continuing the  road-map laid by her late father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
