Jammu and Kashmir will have a rotational Chief Minister with PDP leader Mufti Mohammed Sayeed remaining in the post for the first three years followed by a Congress nominee for the remaining three years, state PCC President Ghulam Nabi Azad said tonight.
"Jo bhi faisala hua hain,
wo teen-teen sal ke liye hua hai" (Whatever decision has been taken is for three years each) Azad told reporters.
Azad, who is also the CLP leader, said there would be a Deputy Chief Minister from the Congress.
He suggested that the post would go to someone other than him as "CLP leader becomes the Chief Minister".
Azad said that it would be a coalition Government with all like minded parties getting representation in it.
