PDP defers meeting with Mehbooba


The PDP has deferred a scheduled meeting of its delegation with its party president, Mrs.  Mefbooba Mufti, who is currently under detention in Srinagar, hours after announcing that a team of leaders would see her on Monday.

No reason was given for the development which came on a day when a 15-member delegation of the National Conference from Jammu met their detained party president De. Farooq Abdullah and vice president, Mr.  Omar Abdullah in Srinagar.

'The PDP team has to defer the scheduled visit of its delegation to Srinagar to meet the party president Mrs Mehbooba tomorrow (Monday),' former PDP legislator and spokesperson, Mr.  Firdous Tak, said.

He did not give any reason for the sudden decision which came barely hours after the party announced that the state administration has given permission to a delegation  from Jammu to meet the party president.

Sources within the party, however, said the visit has been deferred because of lack of unanimity on the composition of the delegation.

The visit has been deferred following the rift within the party over the composition of the delegation, they said.

Another PDP leader, who did not wish to be named, said the party will meet shortly to decide the new schedule.

'The visit has only been deferred and not cancelled,' he said.
