jammu & kashmir
Decks were cleared on Thursday for PDP President Mehbooba Mufti to take over as the first woman chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir after she was unanimously elected as the legislature party leader and nominated as the party’s CM candidate. The 56-year-old Mehbooba was elected as the leader of PDP Legislature Party at a meeting of party MPs, MLAs and MLCs at her residence in Srinagar lasting for one and a half hour. PDP will now need a letter of support from BJP which is seen as a mere formality.
