Srinagar, July 6 ::: Former Parliamentarian and PDP Chief spokes-person, Dr.Mehboob Beg has said that PDP is a creation of Mufti Sahab’s vision, skills and political wisdom. Dr.Mehboob Beg, while reacting to the comments of the former RAW Chief, Mr.Dulat said that PDP was built on the hard-work and persistence of Mufti Mohd. Sayeed and was further entrenched into the hearts and minds of the people by the efforts of Ms.Mehbooba Mufti, who went to every nook and corner of the state, working tirelessly to take the agenda and vision of PDP to the door-steps of the masses. Dr.Mehboob Beg said any efforts to belittle or malign the Political Leadership of Jammu and Kashmir should not be taken lying down and the masses as well as the political parties across the board should unite and stand-up against it. Dr.Mehboob Beg said that Mufti Mohd.Sayeed deserves a lot of credit for providing the people of Jammu and Kashmir with a political alternative which is essential for a flourishing democracy.
Dr.Mehboob Beg was also severe on Mr.Dulat’s revelation of ‘New Delhi’ having sponsored the medical treatment of certain leaders in Kashmir and said that such humanitarian issues need not be given a political color. Dr.Beg said that casting aspersions of the Jammu and Kashmir political leadership and giving a political color to everything related to the state was unbecoming of a man of Dulat’s stature and did not leave a good precedence for those to follow. The senior leader endorsed the view to take all stake-holders in the J&K dispute on-board and consistently engaging them in talks.
