Political signal! Sonia Gandhi meets Mehbooba Mufti
Many reports claimed it to be a political signal of two leaders coming together to form government.
However, PDP denied all such claims and said this is a private condolence visit. It's about sympathy, empathy, solidarity, creating an opening to the future.
Sonia landed in Srinagar in a commercial flight 2 hours before she visited Mufti.
The meeting that lasted for 10 minutes was designed to convey, “I understand your loss very well.”
Mufti and Gandhis have been good friend from long time. Recently, Sonia Gandhi had visited Sayeed twice when he was admitted in AIIMS in New Delhi.
