Srinagar: Senior PDP leader and former Parliamentarian, Mehboob Beg, Saturday hailed Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s statement where-in she has appealed to the protestors to give her a chance.
“It is only fair that she be given a chance,” Beg said. “It is not that she is asking for the moon. We must give her a chance to address our grievances as we have done with leaders in the past.”
He further appealed to senior Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani to cooperate in this regard and give Mehbooba Mufti the opportunity that she deserves.
“Geelani Sahab must think of Mehbooba Mufti as his daughter, who also happens to be the first Kashmiri Muslim woman to lead our state,” Beg said. “She is not the conventional politician that we deal with most of the times, in-case she does not bring about a change, she will be the first to own up and make way. I appeal to Geelani Sahab to give her a chance, she understands the pain and pulse of the people as she has risen from the grass roots.”
