Srinagar, Jul 17 : Former minister and senior Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Mohammad Khalil Bandh on Wednesday resigned from the basic membership of the party.
In his resignation letter, Mr Bandh alleged that the PDP has compromised on its basic principles after demise of late Mufti Mohammad Syed and veteran faces were sidelined in decision making process. “Experienced faces and wisdom were neglected and humiliated in the party,” Mr Bandh, who was PDP’s district president from Pulwama, wrote.
He outlined the manner in which ‘he found himself suffocating during the tenure of former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti’. Sources said that Mr Bandh is likely to join National Conference (NC). (UNI)
