Mehbooba, who is seen as the successor to her late father as Chief Minister, held four-hour long meeting with party leaders, who included MPs, MLAs, zonal presidents and block presidents, on the issue of government formation and how to take forward Mufti's vision of peace and development.

Giving details of the meeting, he said Mehbooba, who has already been authorized by the party to take a decision on government formation, told the meeting that she is 'ready to take a call on it once she is convinced that the purpose and the objective of the alliance that Mufti had forged with Prime Minister Narendra Modi' would be taken to its logical conclusion.
