Something is cooking?

Something is cooking?

National General Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party  Ram Madhav  meeting the Chairman of Peoples Conference Sajad Gani Lone in Srinagar has triggered the speculations that something is cooking and BJP has not given up yet.
BJP pulling out from the coalition government suddenly in Jammu and Kashmir has brought the state under Governor’s rule. The Governor did not dissolve the Legislative Assembly and placed it under suspended animation.
According to the media reports BJP is trying to encash upon the dissent prevailing within the party ranks of its former ally Peoples Democratic Party. There are even reports that attempts are being made to woo some National Conference MLAs.
Sajad Lone is emerging as the main player and he may play an active role in the politics of Jammu and Kashmir in coming days as BJP is pinning all the hopes on him.
Former Chief Minister and PDP President Mehbooba Mufti it looks like would have to work very hard to keep her flock together as the possibilities of PDP splitting into two are looking inevitable.
After the demise of the former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in January 2016, a few PDP leaders had almost finalized a deal with BJP and were about to enter into an alliance with the saffron party. Had Mehbooba taken some more time to decide whether she should don her father’s mantle or not the PDP could have split in 2016 itself. At that point of time BJP was knocking the doors of Mehbooba Mufti but this time the situation is different as the BJP has left her in the midst.  It would be interesting to see what Mehbooba can do to avert the possible split as possibilities about holding fresh elections looks bleak.
