Amid tensions in the Valley and between the ruling coalition in Jammu and Kashmir, BJP national General Secretary Ram Madhav met with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti at her residence in Srinagar today.
Madhav met with Mufti at her Fairview residence in Gupkar area for 30 minutes, but did not speak about it to the mediapersons who were waiting outside.
The meeting between the two comes in the wake of the deteriorating law and order situation in the valley and reports of a rift between the coalition partners over statements by Madhav and Industries Minister Chandra Prakash Ganga.
Ganga had stoked a controversy by calling for use of bullets on protesters in the valley. He later expressed regret.
The PDP was also unhappy with Madhavs comments complimenting an army officer who had tied a man to the bonnet of a jeep to escape stone-pelting in a Kashmir village.
Besides this, the PDPs defeat in the legislative council elections at the hands of the BJP has also led to friction between the two parties.
