J&K: Mehbooba meets dissident Baig


Mehbooba dropped at Baig’s residence at around 5 pm and the two leaders had a meeting for almost an hour, reports Greater Kashmir quoting sources.

Though it was not immediately known what transpired in the closed-door meeting, the deliberations however assume significance as Mehbooba, a former chief minister, is battling rebellion within her party.

A senior PDP leader tried to play down the meeting, saying it was just a “courtesy call” from the PDP president.

“Baigh sahib hasn’t been keeping well for some time and that is why Mehboobaji went to inquire about his health,” said the party leader.
In his November 20 press conference, Baig, the PDP co-founder, had said that Mehbooba often visits his residence to seek his advice on different issues.

“But she never implements it,” he had said.

Baig’s relation with the PDP leadership plummeted when he was sidelined after the PDP-BJP alliance took shape in 2015. The alliance ended in June this year when BJP walked out of it, bringing down the Mehbooba-led government.

Baig, a former deputy chief minister, had criticised the party “over the way it has performed” during last two-and-a-half years and added that the PDP was “in perils” today and “hasn’t lived up to its vision.”
