It should have been left for passport department to handle: Mehboob Beig

Srinagar: People’s Democratic Party on Wednesday said that issuing passport to Syed Ali Shah Geelani should have been left for passport department to handle but some people try to be hyper patriotic & creates ultra nationalism.

“This is a humanitarian issue where Syed Ali Shah Geelani wants to see his daughter and my party has no problem with this,” PDP spokesperson Mehboob Beig said.

“It should have been left for passport department to handle but some try to be hyper patriotic and create ultra nationalism. We have been debating this for last 3-4 days, a non issue is being made an issue,” he said.
