Papa All Well, Returns Today: Mehbooba

SRINAGAR: Refuting the speculations about Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed not keeping well, his daughter and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti Monday clarified that her father is “all well with the grace of God” and will be returning home from Delhi on Tuesday.

Talking to media persons on the side lines of a party convention in Baramulla, Mehbooba said that the Chief Minister had gone from Delhi to Mumbai to Bangalore to meet his son.

“Today he came back to Delhi and will return to Valley tomorrow,” she said, adding that her father was all well. “If people will speculate, what can I do,” she said.

On the role of separatist leaders in India and Pakistan bilateral talks, the PDP president while saying that her party believes everyone should have right to talk in a democratic set up, said, “one should not expect to be called for a meeting when the two countries are talking about terrorism and border tensions.”

“When India and Pakistan are talking about terrorism or border tensions, I don’t think it is necessary that they (separatists) be involved. It is also true for us (PDP),” she said, adding when the two nations talk of political resolution, “consulting all political voices in Kashmir including separatists makes sense”.
