NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Sep 16: The Indian High Commission on Friday issued visa to the former PaK premier Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chudhary, who is all set to visit Srinagar, to attend wedding ceremony of Dr Yasir Shah son of his close friend Zahoor Ahmed Shah Watali.
While confirming the news well placed sources told Greater Kashmir that Barrister Chudhary has been issued visa and he would travel to Kashmir valley via Lahore-Delhi and Delhi to Srinagar.
Pertinently, the PPP central leader would be the first high profile political personality from Pakistani administered Kashmir (PaK) to visit Kashmir. The former prime minister of PaK is reckoned to be one of the vociferous lobbyists, highlighting Kashmir cause at international level particularly in UK wherein he enjoys great support from Kashmiri as well as Pakistani community.
He contested general elections in 1985, returned as a successful candidate and was elected as Deputy Opposition leader in the House. Since 1985 to 2006 he has been elected to the assembly continuously. He joined Pakistan Peoples’ Party in 1994 and was elected as the Prime Minister of PaK in 1996 whereas in 2001, he became opposition leader of the Legislative Assembly.
It may be recalled here that Watali, the leading business personality of Srinagar has also invited other political personalities including the MC president Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan to attend the marriage ceremony of his son scheduled to be held from September 17 to 21. Khan was supposed to lead a 20-member delegation comprising legislators, intellectuals and media men.
