Secret flights, secret meetings. What’s cooking: Omar Abdullah
Srinagar: Last evening, BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav met PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti to try and end the logjam in government formation in Jammu & Kashmir. The meeting was held in absolute secrecy. No journalists were informed about the meeting.
Ram Madhav had boarded a private flight from Delhi and landed in Srinagar at unusual flight time. Surprisingly, the secret meeting was exposed by Omar Abdullah who noticed activity through a flight app.
The meeting was kept a top secret until Mr Madhav quietly drove into Ms Mufti’s Fair View home in Srinagar. Back in the capital, Mr Madhav’s office insisted that “Sahab is in a meeting in Delhi.” BJP sources say the party didn’t want to attract media attention to the meeting as it would “divert the focus and start endless speculation.”
Unscheduled flight VTJSG just landed in Srinagar after normal operation hours. Something is cooking with the PDP-BJP government formation.
