The oath was taken after Governor Najma Haptullah invited the BJP-led coalition under Singh to form the next government in the state after claiming requisite support from regional parties and Independents.

Since March 11, the day of the results, both the Congress and the BJP have claimed support in order to form the next government.

Although the Congress emerged as the single largest party with 28 MLAs, the BJP, with 21 MLAs, claims to have the support of NPP (4), NPF (4), LJP (1), and three others.
