The real test will now begin for Mehbooba as she has to run the coalition government in which the two allies has many differences. In Kashmir, people are against the alliance as they believe it will pave way for RSS to enter the valley.

According to PDP leaders, the party president Mehbooba Mufti and the state BJP president Sat Sharma would jointly meet the Governor N N Vohra at 3:30 pm on March 26 and stake their claim to form the government.

While PDP has presently 27 members in the 87-member J&K Assembly, BJP has 25 members.

PDP, which had 28 MLAs prior to the death of Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, claims support of one Independent MLA from Ladakh region while BJP has support of three more MLAs.

The clarity in the formation of the government came after PDP chief met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence in New Delhi few days back.

Sources said that swearing-in-ceremony is expected to take place in the first week of April and some new faces may be included in the cabinet of Mehbooba.



However, PDP maintained that there are no differences about the portfolios between the two parties.
