After Long Stalemate, Mehbooba Mufti Sworn-In As First Woman Chief Minister Of J&K

Published on 4 April, 2016 at 2:12 pm By

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti today took oath as the Jammu & Kashmir’s first woman chief minister.

She is the head of the government which is in coalition with BJP. The 56-year-old succeeds her father Mufti Mohammad Saeed who died in January this year.

After that, the state was put under Governor rule as Mehbooba was a bit reluctant to form the government with BJP.

 

 

A law graduate, Mehbooba is known for her grassroots-level popularity. She is also credited with the growth of PDP.

Along with her, 23 ministers took the oath. BJP’s Nirmal Singh will be the  Deputy Chief Minister.

But, trouble has already started brewing for her. Senior PDP leader and lawmaker Tariq Karra boycotted the ceremony.



Sources said he had serious differences over Mehbooba Mufti’s selection of ministers for the new cabinet.

Mehbooba also dropped three party leaders who were senior ministers in her father’s team.

Though Mehbooba sent an invitation to former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah for her swearing-in ceremony, Congress boycotted it.

Omar Abdullah had earlier tweeted:

 

 

Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh, among many others, were present during the swearing-in ceremony.
