PDP and BJP have ironed out their differences and reached a consensus on a Common Minimum Programme (CMP) that will form the basis of their unique coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir to be sworn-in at 11 AM on Sunday next.

Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, founder-patron of PDP, flew in here this evening to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow which will be final step in his return as the state’s Chief Minister at the head of the coalition that will mark the first time ever for the BJP to be in power in the sensitive state.

Sayeed said on his arrival that a CMP on which there has been a consensus has been made and now he will be meeting the Prime Minister tomorrow.

Refusing to talk about the understanding on contentious issues like Article 370 which gives special status to the state, he said, “I won’t talk on the (CMP) will come in black and white and the entire public of the country will see what we are doing.”

It is expected that Sayeed will invite Modi for the swearing-in function in Jammu.
