Mufti, former chief minister of the state, died at AIIMS hospital this day last year after he was admitted due to severe infection.

Although PDP had planned several rallies across the valley to mark Mufti’s first death anniversary, snowfall over the past four days put a spanner in the works.

However, the party has organised a function at Indoor Stadium later in the day to pay tributes to the departed leader.
