Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Spokesman and former MP, Dr. Mehboob Beg on Saturday appealed to Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani to think of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti as “his own daughter” and “give her a chance”.
“Geelani Sahab must think of Mehbooba Mufti as his daughter, who also happens to be the first Kashmiri Muslim woman to lead our state. She is not the conventional politician that we deal with most of the times, in-case she does not bring about a change, she will be the first to own up and make way. I appeal to Geelani Sahab to give her a chance, she understands the pain and pulse of the people as she has risen from the grass roots,” said Dr.Beg
He also hailed Mehbooba Mufti’s statement in which she has appealed to the protestors to give her a chance.
“It is only fair that she is given a chance, it is not that she is asking for the moon. We must give her a chance to address our grievances as we have done with leaders in the past,” said Dr.Beg.
Dr.Beg said that it would be fair that “we give her a chance that she thoroughly deserves as the Chief Minister of the state, who has risen from the grass roots.”
“She is not asking for the moon, she is merely seeking a chance and an opportunity to perform and address the problems faced by the people, we must give her that chance and then judge her,” said Dr.Beg.
