“We have been engaging with the PDF leaders and we have been discussing with them about the merger possibility”, he told reporters.

“I am told the PDF is having a central executive committee meeting as we speak…and post that they will have a general council meeting so I think PDF leaders will be in a better position to telly ou what the decision they are taking,” he said.

On any cabinet berths to PDF MLAs, ConradĀ  said, “As of now we are only discussing the matter so we will wait for the decision that they take and accordingly decide on how to move forward.”l
