The meeting assumed significance as there were reports of a few PDP MLAs openly rebelling against the party supremo and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
These MLAs also indicated of supporting the BJP to form an alternative government, as per the reports.
Though Madhav recently dismissed the reports about BJP making any attempts to form government by splitting PDP or any other party yet speculations refused to die down.
