There is strong speculation that Mufti Mohd Sayeed’s son Tassaduq Hussain Mufti, who happens to be younger brother of Mehbooba is likely to be introduced in party, and state politics. Once Mehbooba takes the oath of Chief Ministership which she has steadfastly refused to elicit some promises from BJP, junior Mufti could fight the first election of his life from Anantnag parliamentary constituency.
Tassaduq is basically a cinematographer who works in the Bollywood, and has base in Bengaluru, and Mumbai. However, sources said that once the Anantnag parliamentary seat is vacated by Mehbooba, her brother will be asked to fight from there as the family would like to keep the seat safe. The indications that Mufti’s son could get a role in the party comes from the fact that despite having no political background, he was part of the core group which met in Srinagar after the demise of Mufti to discuss government formation.
