Chief Minister Mufti Sayeed has been gracious enough to grant audience to BJP legislators, who ‘strongly’ urged him to form a Steering Committee immediately as required by the Common Minimum Programme and discuss all contentious issues before taking any final decision thereon. They brooded while telling the Mufti that PDP statements and actions have put the BJP to embarrassment in the public and its supporters.
Is it a matter of pride or shame for the BJP, especially its legislators, to have sought an appointment with the Chief Minister to present a memorandum of their demands rather than being equal partners in the governance process, being the coalition partners?
