In his long political journey he won many admirers across the political spectrum,” he wrote in a tweet. “Mufti Sahab provided a healing touch to J-K through his leadership. He will be missed by all of us. Condolences to his family and supporters,” he added. Sayeed was admitted in a private ward in AIIMS on December 24 after he complained of fever and chest pain.
