Jammu: People’s Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti on Monday visited the historic Raghunath bazar here.
The former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister interacted with traders to ascertain the current situation in one of the economic and trade hubs of the summer capital, party leaders said.

A semi-automatic multi-level car parking facility constructed during her government besides the market beautification project has provided much needed solace for the traders, they said.
