Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Friday met Jammu and Kashmir Governor N.N.Vohra here.

“PDP president Mehbooba Mufti called on Vohra at the Raj Bhawan and discussed the political and developmental scenario in the state with the governor,” a PDP source told

The sources said Mufti had been invited for an informal meeting by the governor and she had called on him in response to that communication.

The meeting lasted for more than an hour.

Mufti told a membership rally of her party here earlier on Friday that her priority was strengthening of the party and not becoming the chief minister of the state.

Jammu and Kashmir was placed under governor’s rule on January 8 after Chief Minister, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed passed away in New Delhi on January 7, and the PDP, which was ruling the state in a coalition with the Bharatiya Janata Party, did not come forward to stake claim to form a new government.

A political stalemate between the PDP and the BJP over government formation in the state has been continuing for nearly two months now.
