Srinagar: Altaf Bukhari led political group is all set to form a new political party in Jammu and Kashmir.
Senior political leader Ghulam Hassan Mir who is one of the political stalwarts in the group confirmed that they will announce the formation of a new political party. However he didn’t give any timeline for the formation of party.
“Discussion and deliberations are going on in regarding the formation and agenda of the political party. We are also in touch with likeminded politicians,” he informed.
Saying that a need was felt to fill a void between people and government, Mir said that only political representatives can fulfil this vacuum.
Regarding the formation of a political party, Altaf Bukhari had told The Kashmir Magazine earlier this month in an interview that there is no such plan in offing.
However he added, “I and my like-minded friends and colleagues have joined hands to address and mitigate the sufferings of our people. Tomorrow if the need arises for a bigger platform to pursue for our rights in an institutional manner, we may think about launching a political platform,” he told The Kashmir Magazine.
On being asked about his scheduled meeting with Muzafar Hussain Beigh, he said, “ beigh bukhari bhai Bhai.”
