Chief Minister Mufti Sayeed is in Mumbai interacting with Bollywood bigwigs and a select group of Corporate India, official sources said.
Mufti’s visit on the eve of Prime Minister’s visit was scheduled already. He would be flying back home on Friday.
Informed sources said Mufti took off from Srinagar Wednesday evening. His first stop was Agra where he visited Taj Mahal and later he flew directly to Mumbai. Apart from Finance Minister, Dr Haseeb Drabu, his political adviser Prof Amitabh Matoo is also accompanying him.
Sources said apart from attending the ongoing film festival organized by Academy of Moving Images (MAMI), Mufti will be holding a session with the Bollywood biggies on the sidelines. However, sources said, he has a meeting scheduled with a section of Corporate India. The agenda of the meeting is not known.
Dr Drabu was in Delhi for two days, apparently in connection with the last-minute touches to the economic package that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to announce in Srinagar this weekend. Drabu flew back home on Wednesday and is understood to have joined the Chief Minister at the airport.
