JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti turned emotional while recalling a recent incident, where a peon in the chief ministers secretariat presented her with two pens and a handkerchief, saying they belonged to her late father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
Mehbooba, however, seemed very enthusiastic about taking the state to new heights with the help of the Centre.
In an interview to a TV channel, Mehbooba said she had never thought of becoming chief minister and only wanted to be a minister in her fathers cabinet.
Today, unfortunately, the great Mufti Sahib is not here, and therefore, there is no joy at this time of oath-taking, she said.
She said she would be returning to Srinagar on Saturday to discuss certain key issues with her cabinet colleagues.
