Party will decide who becomes CM: Mufti Mohammed

Jammu, November 14: In the past few months, the rumours of Mehbooba replacing her father shortly and becoming the next and first woman Chief  Minister of the sensitive state of J&K has been fuelled among the political and administrative circles.

While putting rest to these  growing speculations regarding the pass on of the state’s command to president of People’s Democratic Party and daughter Mehbooba  Mufti, the current Chief Minister of the state Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said that he cannot take the decision all alone and it is party’s job to decide over the matter.

The CM said that entrusting Mehbooba with the chair of Chief Minister in the state is not an issue at this point of time but at the same time the father praised his daughter for the party’s consolidation in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Coming of Mehbooba Mufti (as Chief Minister) is a part of democracy. She works in the field while I only give speeches and sit in the office. Whatever consolidation we have done, it is not because of me. It is due to her efforts. She won elections from Bijbehra because of her efforts. This will be the party’s job (to decide about her as the next Chief Minister). “‘Yeh aa jayega, woh aa jayega’… that is not an issue as of now,” Mufti told reporters at his official residence on Friday.

While appreciating  Mehbooba, Mufti said that she is constantly in touch with the people of Jammu and Kashmir and the party has won the trust of people in the Jammu because of her considerations.

Mufti also said that Mehbooba kept  a good liasioning and rapport with the party member when he was busy with the administration functioning and could not even communicate with the people in the party.
