Gadkari Visits Mufti’s Residence in Kashmir


Jammu: Union Surface Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Sunday visited the residence of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti to offer condolences on the demise of her father and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

“It is no time to talk politics. I have come here to convey condolences on behalf of the central government,” Gadkari told reporters outside the Fairview residence of Mehbooba at Gupkar.

Recalling his meeting with the former Chief Minister in Delhi, the Union Minister said Sayeed had a dream for Jammu and Kashmir which included tourism, development and infrastructure among other things.

“We will try to fulfill all the assurances given to him on Jammu and Kashmir,” he said. Sayeed breathed his last on Thursday at AIIMS in New Delhi after undergoing treatment there since December 24.
