NEW DELHI–The ruling Hindu nationalist party will for the first time govern Indian-occupied Kashmir, under a power-sharing deal with another party, officials said Tuesday.
After months of negotiations following an election in December, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the regional rival Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have agreed to form a coalition government in the state, where rebel groups have been fighting Indian rule since 1989.
BJP president Amit Shah announced the deal after meeting PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti in New Delhi, saying the two parties had resolved most of their differences.
