Senior leader Muzaffar Hussain Beigh said “Mehboobaji is not ready and oath-taking will happen only after chahrum (the fourth day ceremony) is over,” who is tipped to succeed Mehbooba as PDP president. Beigh, who is also senior lawyer and a constitutional expert, added that there will be no constitutional crises due to the vacuum. “There will be a few days of governor’s rule but he will be a caretaker till another chief minister takes oath,” said Beigh. also stressed that the party does not want to put pressure on Mehbooba. “She is a mother, a daughter, a sister…the tragedy is huge and she is everybody’s source of strength. It will be unfair to force her to do something,” he said. Sayeed is the third J&K chief minister to die in office but a delay in the announcement of the successor is unprecedented. National Conference founder Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah was succeeded by son Farooq Abdullah even before the legendary Kashmiri leader was laid to rest on September 8, 1982. The state’s chief minister and Mehbooba’s father, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, died at AIIMS in Delhi on Thursday leaving the state technically without a government. Barring any last-minute hitches, Mehbooba, 56, is set to become the state’s first woman chief minister with coalition partner BJP indicating it was comfortable with her at the helm. Jammu and Kashmir might be headed for a few days of governor’s rule
