Mehbooba Mufti, the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will relocate to the outskirts of the city by November 15.
She was recently asked by the government to vacate her official residence on Gupkar road.
“Mehbooba Mufti will vacate the official house within seven to 10 days,” a party leader told the media.” She has decided to shift to a relative’s house on the outskirts of city at Harwan. Many people offered the former CM accommodation, but she declined.”
Mufti, her chief spokesperson Suhail Bukhari said, had been offered a dilapidated place in Tulsi Bagh, which she found unsuitable.
Another PDP spokesman Mohit Bhan said that everyone knows that Mehbooba Mufti does not have a house to live in. “This is why the government is weaponising the accommodation,” he said.
