Srinagar: The meeting of Jammu and Kashmir State Administrative Council (SAC), headed by Governor N N Vohra, was on Tuesday postponed amid signs of thaw between the BJP and the PDP over government formation in the state.
“The SAC meeting scheduled to be held today has been postponed,” an official spokesman said without assigning any reason for the move.
As the political deadlock in Jammu and Kashmir continued over government formation, the SAC meeting was scheduled to consider the Budget Proposals for the state for the financial year 2016-17.
The postponing of the SAC meeting comes a day after finance minister of India, Arun Jaitley, told Parliament that New Delhi was willing to walk the extra mile for Jammu and Kashmir, fuelling speculations that the PDP and the BJP might be closer to forming the government in the state which is under governor’s rule since January 8.
Jaitley said the government stood by its commitment to equitable development of all the three regions of the state- Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
