Srinagar, Jan 5: The chairman Hurriyat Conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, and JKLF Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, left for Delhi Tuesday to meet top Pakistani leaders in New Delhi tomorrow.
The chairman Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who is already in New Delhi for treatment, is also scheduled to meet the Chairman of the Pakistan Senate, Farooq Ahmad Nayak, and the Speaker of the National Assembly, Fahmida Mirza. The three leaders have been invited by the Pakistan High Commission.
Mirwaiz was accompanied by Prof. Abdul Gani Bhat, Bilal Gani Lone and Agha Budgami. Shabir Ahmad Shah couldn’t be part of the team due to health reasons.
