Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party pres­i­dent Me­hbooba Mufti hinted on Fri­day she could snap ties with coali­tion part­ner BJP if the Cen­tre didn’t an­nounce con­fi­dence-build­ing mea­sures (CBMs) to end the political stale­mate in Jammu and Kash­mir and form a govern­ment.

At a meet­ing in Jammu, Me­hbooba told party work­ers the new mea­sures were aimed at cre­at­ing a “pos­i­tive at­mos­phere” be­fore the new govern­ment was formed.
