A BJP delegation met the governor, NN Vohra, on Thursday and sought more time to stitch an alliance for government formation in Jammu and Kashmir.”Talks have started for formation of government which should be stable and complete its six-year term. We have sought more time from the governor for submitting our proposals,” said Jugal Kishore Sharma, BJP state president.Though Sharma did not name the specific party with which the BJP is talking, he hinted at tilting towards the PDP which has emerged as the single-largest party with 28 seats of which 25 were from the valley.”Talks have started for stable government formation. How many parties are there in J&K? Talks have begun with those parties who have been given mandate by the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.Time for constituting the new assembly is running fast as the term of current House ends on January 18. Omar Abdullah government had taken oath of office on January 5 2009 and the assembly was constituted on January 19 2009. Unlike other states, the Jammu and Kashmir assembly has a six year term. If the assembly is not constituted by January 18, the Jammu and Kashmir may be placed under the governor’s rule.
