Former finance minister Haseeb Drabu resigns from PDP


Former finance minister Haseeb Drabu has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Drabu announced his resignation in a letter to PDP president, Mehbooba Mufti.
“Even though I have not been a dissident — you are aware I had resigned from the cabinet, assembly and party nearly two years ago which you didn’t accept — I have disengaged from the party affairs for quite some time now.”
“I didn’t precipitate the matter because I believe it is ethically and morally wrong to leave the party under whose aegis one has contested and won the seat in the legislative assembly. Now that it is over, I am hereby resigning from the JK PDP,” Drabu wrote in his letter.

Bidding Adieu to PDP. Another phase of life over.
