He played a pioneering and crucial role while serving the party and the people of J&K in various capacities; a great mind and an exemplary statesman; he was driven into politics by his resolve to serve the people of J&K. He played a key role in the framing of various pro peasantry and pro poor legislations. An institution he was in himself. I pay my tributes to him on his death anniversary. May almighty bestow upon him the highest echelons in Jannah.”
