SRINAGAR: In a major political development, the founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Muzzaffar Hussain Baig is likely to join the Peoples Conference (PC) today on Wednesday.
Quoting sources news agency KDC reported that Baig is all set to join Sajad Gani Lone led Peoples Conference today here at Srinagar.
“All the arrangements have been finalized and Baig will be joining PC today for which stage has been set. A Joint press conference may also be held after joining,” top sources added.
Pertinently, Baig had parted his ways from PDP last year in November after a mandate to contest DDC elections on PAGD ticket was denied to his wife Safeena Baig .
However, Safeena Baig contested the election as an independent candidate from Sangrama DDC constituency of the Baramulla district and emerged victoriously. Later, She was also elected as chairperson of DDC Baramulla.
Moreover, Baig had previously served as deputy chief minister of the erstwhile state and also as a member of parliament (MP) from the Baramulla Lok Sabha seat. Analysts are seeing the development as a major boost to Peoples Conference (PC).
