National Conference to form government in J&K

National Conference is all set to form the next government in Sri Nagar. It has emerged as the single largest party in the Jammu & Kashmir Assembly elections by winning 28 seats in the 87 member house.

The PDP is the second largest party with 21 MLAs in the assembly and is followed by Congress that has 17 members and the BJP.

The BJP surprised every other party with its performance as it won 11 seats. It had just one seat in the last Assembly of the state. Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar have hinted that they could form government with the support of Congress. 

The PDP and the Congress were in power in the last regime. But Mehbooba Mufti and her father are bitter rivals of National Conference (NC). Omar Abdullah is likely to be appointed as the Chief Minister, as Farooq has hinted.
