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.”
