Post Mehbooba mum on new govt as she reaches out to Jammu

In her first visit to Jammu after the death of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti today asked party leaders to take forward the mission of Mufti Sayeed and implement it in letter and spirit.
She expressed her gratitude to leaders and people of Jammu for accepting Mufti Sayeed by electing him from RS Pura in 1985.
She met senior party functionaries, legislators, general secretaries, spokespersons and senior leaders from the Jammu region at the party office here.
Sources in the PDP told The Tribune that Mehbooba refrained from talking about government formation. Instead, she spoke about the legacy of Mufti Sayeed which he had left behind for the people of the state.
“She said that after her father’s death she had come to meet party leaders of Jammu with the motive that the mission of Mufti Sayeed could be taken forward and implemented in letter and spirit,” the source said.
The meeting of PDP leaders of Jammu was held a day after Mehbooba met the Governor at Raj Bhawan and conveyed to him her views on government formation. She has demanded J&K-specific confidence-building measures from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
After meeting the party leaders, Mehbooba had some interaction with party workers waiting in the lawns of the party office at Gandhinagar.
Earlier in the day, PDP spokesperson Firdous Tak had said that till an assurance came from the Centre no government would be formed. “Mehbooba has already made it clear in her meeting with the Governor and we stand by that,” he said.
The PDP has called a meeting of party leaders of the Jammu region, including district legislators, general secretaries, secretaries, presidents and zonal presidents of the Jammu region, on February 5 in Jammu. Mehbooba will be addressing the meeting.
