It seems there is hardly anything that his political opponents—the BJP and the PDP— can do without former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah getting a whiff off.

According to media reports, when an unscheduled flight landed in Srinagar on Wednesday, Abdullah realised that something was in the offing. The tech-savvy ex-J&K CM had used flight tracker app to find out about the flight.

Without further delay, he tweeted his suspicion.

Omar Abdullah @abdullah_omar Unscheduled flight VTJSG just landed in Srinagar after normal operation hours. Something is cooking with the PDP-BJP government formation.

Indeed, a top-secret meeting had taken place between BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti at the latter's residence. The meeting on formation of government in the state which is under Governor’s rule was so closely guarded a secret that not even many senior leaders of both the parties were kept in the loop.

According to sources, the meeting lasted for an hour and there is the likelihood of an announcement in the near future as a result of this meeting.
