The process of taking oath has not started yet. We are in mourning,” the leader told KNS. “As per constitution, we have 24 hours left till tomorrow evening,” he said. Speculations are rife that Mehbooba will be taking oath tonight following the death of chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed at AIIMS in New Delhi today morning.
