Srinagar: Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on the International Youth Day on Thursday said she missed the youth Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Waheed-ur-Rehman Parra.
PDP president Mehbooba alleged that Parra was being punished for his commitment towards Kashmir cause.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter the vice-chairperson of Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) Mebooba said “ On this International Youth Day, I terribly miss our Youth President @parawahid who played a stellar part in engaging with youngsters in J&K. He is being punished for his commitment towards the Kashmir cause. I salute his integrity, courage & grace”.
Parra was arrested on November 25, 2020 by National Investigation Agency (NIA) in a militant funding case days after he filed nomination papers for District Development Council (DDC) polls in Pulwama. He won the seat despite remaining in jail during campaigning. He was re-arrested in another case after a court granted him bail in January this year.
