New Delhi, January 07

A year after he passed away on January 7, former J&K CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed is likely to be honoured with the Padma Vibhushan, the highest category of Padma or civilian honours given away on Republic Day.

The award is significant in that the late Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir had struck an alliance with the BJP to form a government after the 2015 elections yielded a fractured mandate.

The award is likely to be given on January 26, the Indian Republic Day.
