BJP leaders, PDP rebels making last ditch attempts to regain power

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 14: As the Government of India is all set to put Jammu and Kashmir under President's rule, a few BJP leaders and the PDP rebels are making hectic efforts once again to create an impression that "popular" government would be formed as their entry into civil secretariat is must for Jammu and Kashmir to survive.
Sources told Early Times that the news about Governor Satya Pal Malik contemplating to dissolve the present Assembly in the state is making the BJP leaders and the PDP rebels believe that time is slipping out of their hands and if they fail to garner the support to form the government they would lose a "golden opportunity."
A top J&K BJP leader on Tuesday said that "BJP is ready to form the government any time. We will stake a claim as and when the numbers come our way."
"The BJP on its own has 26 MLAs (25 elected and one nominated) in the House of 89 (87 elected and two nominated) and we need 19 others to stake the claim," he had said.
However, BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav at a function in Kathua last night had reportedly said that since the Governor's rule was imposed in the state there had been development in all sectors. "Even the public is happy. So, the party has decided that the Governor's rule should continue for some more time," he had said.
It may be recalled that after BJP toppled the Mehbooba Mufti led government in J&K in June this year, Madhav, who is also BJP's pointman for J&K, had met Sajad Lone and had reportedly asked him to work out the options for the government formation in J&K minus Mehbooba Mufti. In fact a few PDP rebels had come forward and were eager to join hands with the BJP to form the government. However, the BJP and PDP rebels couldn't cobble up the numbers.
At one point of time out of 28 MLAs Mehbooba Mufti was just left with 16 MLAs and she had started threatening the Centre that it her party is broken more Salahuddins and Yasin Maliks would be born.
After the PDP-BJP divorce some people were projecting Sajad Lone, who has got just two assembly seats, has the next Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir. Five months down the line Sajad has not been able to get the support which is needed to form the government and having 44 MLAs on the board looks impossible. Chances of the government formation are bleak and there is every possibility about the present assembly being dissolved to pave the way for fresh elections.
