National Conference Vice President, Omar Abdullah on Sunday visited the bereaved family of late Syed Muhammad Shafi Shah at Khanabal and extended condolences to them.
While sharing grief of the bereaved family, Omar said the late leader was an exemplary politician, who always gave importance to the interests of the party.
“Shafi sahib possessed exceptional qualities, which are uncommon in contemporary politics. An ace speaker, a proactive ground worker and a committed soldier of party, he held the party flag high in the most trying times, braving all difficulties,” said Omar. “He left us too soon. His passing away has created a void in the political landscape of south Kashmir, and his presence will be missed in the party.”
While paring for eternal peace to the departed soul, Omar said Shafi will be remembered for his contribution to the party for all the times to come.
On the occasion, Omar consoled the son of late leader, Syed Sabha and offered fateh for the deceased.
Among others senior leaders, GA Shah, Nazir Khan Gurezi, Altaf Kaloo, Javed Dar, Imran Nabi Dar, Reyaz Khan, Sheikh Rafi, Suhail Beg, Younis Mubarak Gul, Ahsan Pardesi, Irfan Gulzar, Peerzada Musharraf and Javaid Bhat were also present. The functionaries also participated in the fateh prayers.
