Highly placed sources told Early Times that Prof Mattoo held two detailed meetings with the Chief Minister on January 10 following which the two parties expressed willingness to move ahead together.
"The first meeting lasted for around two hours and later in the evening another round of talks were held, something which lasted for around 30 minutes," an official in the CM's Secretariat said.
Sources privy to the meetings said the government told Prof Mattoo that his presence was needed as he happens to be an "asset for the entire subcontinent." "Leave apart your presence being a representative of a particular community, how can we ignore that you are an internationally acclaimed intellectual. When the world including SAARC counties and Australia reap benefits of your wisdom how could you think that our government will sideline you ever," the government told Prof Amitabh Mattoo.

Sources said one of the PDP ministers told Prof Matto that the official who had allegedly misbehaved with him on the day he resigned would be given a "befitting reply in official terms." "We cannot afford to ignore anything pertaining to what led to undue differences between you and PDP government, because that all was embarrassing," the minister told.
Sources said at least two senior ministers from the government were in constant touch with Prof Mattoo since the day he resigned from the chair and subsequently left for Australia.
As the day unfolded today, there was a surprise for lawmakers. Prof Mattoo was seen in the gallery of the Legislative Assembly in Jammu.
"It was to give a feel to the adversaries that he will be back because government needs him," a PDP leader said.
However, later this evening Prof Mattoo left for the national capital to attend some crucial meeting. Despite repeated attempts, he couldn't be contacted for comments.
