J&K Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, founder of the ruling People's Democratic Party of Jammu and Kashmir, died in Delhi today following a brief illness. He was 79.

He was famously called Delhi's man in the disputed territory, one who stood against Sheikh Abdullah and his party. This was his second term as chief minister of the state. Sayeed, who was also the Chief Minister of J&K  from 2002 to 2005 in coalition with Congress, played a leading part in PDP and BJP coming together to form the first ever coalition involving the saffron party in the state.

Many paid tribute to Sayeed on social media including Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He hailed Sayeed's statesmanship and said that he was a healing touch to the state of Jammu and Kashmir. 

Here are the few reactions on twitter-
