PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and BJP leader Nirmal Singh met Governor NN Vohra at Raj Bhawan in Srinagar on Saturday and staked claim to form government.
 
Speaking to the press after meeting governor, Mufti said, "We're thankful to the BJP for their unconditional support in formation of Government in J&K".
 
"I am very satisfied with the assurances received from Prime Minister," she added.
 
On his part, Singh said BJP MLAs have submitted letter to Guv stating their support to PDP in Govt formation.
 
Mufti, who will be the first woman chief minister of the state, will succeed her father Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, who passed away on January 7 this year due to illness.
 
The state has been currently under governor's rule.
