editor  Former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s trusted lieutenant and close aid Abdul Rahman veeri has been appointed as chairman of the Election Board. Such a development besides giving clear hint that who would remain privy to the party affairs in the past has also indicated that if Mehbooba Mufti decides to assume office of the chief minister in the state, the veterans would get their due share and respect in the government. PDP president is keen to prefer old guards instead of the new comers in the party and that their role in the times to come would be vital and crucial.

    Muzaffar Hussain Beigh, another party veteran who earlier was disgruntled with the PDP functioning has occupied a central stage in party’s overall functioning. Beigh who earlier had raised his voice over some measures that the party took while being in the government could now be seen accompanying Mehbooba Mufti during press and other vital meets. What Mehbooba Mufti needs at present is to keep her party’s flock together an attempt that could yield the results in her favour only and would help her to get the party out of the crises and transform it into a major regional force.

     The masses along with Kashmir’s political spectrum stares at present towards the PDP chief, desperately waiting for her to reveal cards – something that so far she has kept closer to chest. Veterans would be her priority for sure , reaming has to be seen.
