In a major development, three top separatist leaders in Jammu and Kashmir Wednesday joined Hurriyat Conference led by octogenarian leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
Sources told that Freedom party chief Shabir Ahmad Shah, National Front chairman Nayeem Ahmad Khan and Anjuman-e-Shar-e-Shian president Agha Syed Hassan reached the Hyderpora residence of Geelani early today to join the amalgam.
The leaders will address a joint press conference at noon today, they said.
Shah and Khan, it needs to be mentioned, had launched Hurriyat JK last year after differences with Hurriyat (M) chairman MIrwaiz Umar Farooq.
Agha Hassan was expelled from Hurriyat (M) for ‘maligning’ the image of the amalgam days after he expressed his ‘dissatisfaction’ over its functioning in June earlier this year.
