Mehbooba Mufti likely to take charge as J&K CM

Jammu: Mehbooba Mufti is likely to take over as the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir following the death of her father and incumbent CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed who passed away on early Thursday morning.

While the top People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leaders made a unanimous choice for Mehbooba Mufti, BJP too indicated its support.

If the transition comes through, Mehbooba Mufti will be the first woman chief minister of the state. News24 Bureau
