Asked who would be the chief minister in such an arrangement, the 38-year-old leader said “we will talk about formation of a coalition and if we succeed in the talks, then probably within two or three days, the announcement of coalition will be possible," adding that he will talk to the Congress leadership on Tuesday.

“Everything will be clear after the talks," he added.

Asked whether the NC and Congress have an arrangement of rotating the chief ministership after three years during the six year tenure, he said, “we have not come with any formula and any condition. I think it (talks) will be successful".

When queried whether one can say that the separatist sentiments in the Valley has died down with the election results, he said it was “too premature" at this point to say so.
