At least 21 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) legislators met party chief Mehbooba Mufti since Saturday and pledged their support to her.
According to party sources, these legislators started calling on the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister soon after her return from Delhi yesterday.
They said at least 21 legislators have met Ms Mufti so far and pledged their support to the leadership after some party leaders, including legislators, raised a banner of revolt against her last week.
This also included one of the disgruntled legislators and efforts are underway to convince him, the PDP sources said, but refused to name the legislator.
They said efforts are on to establish contact with the other legislators as most of them were out of station.
However, former minister Imran Ansari, who is out of town and had hit out at Ms Mufti, accusing her of nepotism, told PTI over phone that there is no question of going back on his stand on the former chief minister’s leadership.
