Mehbooba Mufti to be sworn in as first woman CM of Jammu & Kashmir on April 4
02 April 2016 Current Affairs: Mehbooba Mufti will be sworn in as the first woman Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir on April 4 .Mattoo, who worked as an advisor to former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, expressed the hope that 56-year-old Mehbooba would usher in a new era of peace and prosperity in the region. The date for the oath ceremony of the new cabinet was decided after deliberations between the leadership of both the parties .Asked whether there were any differences between the coalition partners which led to delay in the swearing-in ceremony, the sources said there were no differences but deliberations between alliance partners happen and they take time. PDP and BJP had staked claim for government formation on March 26, two days after Mehbooba was elected as PDP's legislature party leader. After the death of her father, who headed PDP-BJP coalition government for 10 months from March 1, last year until his death on January 7, this year, Mehbooba had been reluctant to take over as CM of the PDP-BJP coalition government. She had been seeking assurances from the central government on implementation of Agenda of Alliance, Common Minimum Programme (CMP) framed by the two parties last year. Mehbooba also sought some J-K-specific confidence building measures. However, her meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 22 ended the over two-months-long deadlock on government formation in the state.
