The PDP Saturday appealed to Hurriyat Conference Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani to “cooperate” with CM Mehbooba Mufti and give her “a chance” to address problems faced by the people. A statement issued by the party quoted its spokesperson Mehboob Beg as saying that Geelani must think of Mehbooba as his daughter and give her the opportunity “she deserves”.
“I appeal to Geelani Sahab to give her a chance, she understands the pain and pulse of the people as she has risen from the grassroots,” the statement said. It added that Mehbooba is the first Muslim woman from Kashmir to lead the state. “In case she does not bring about a change, she will be the first to own up and make way.”
