"There are certainly no conditions from our side and there was no meeting of our leaders on government formation. We respect the right of the bereaved family of Mufti Sahib to mourn his death," BJP state president Sat Paul Sharma told reporters.

Sharma said he had received a letter from the Governor on government formation but the party will take a decision on it only after Sayeed's fourth day ceremony is observed tomorrow.

"There is no hurry on this issue. We will definitely bemeeting after tomorrow's ceremony for Mufti Sahib and take a decision," he said.

Sharma said, “It was a 'historic' coalition between the BJP and the PDP in the state and we would like it continue".

"We are interested in peace and development in the state and we want this coalition to continue on this path shown by Mufti Mohammd Sayeed," he added.

Senior PDP leader and former Education Minister Naeem Akhtar also dismissed suggestions about any conditions set by either this party or the BJP for forming the new government.
