Srinagar, July 3: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is going to hold a meeting after the return of Mehbooba Mufti from New Delhi to decide the fate of its disgruntled members.
Two weeks after the BJP pulled out from the alliance, three legislators of PDP have revolted against the party leadership.
These include MLA Pattan, Imran Raza Ansari, and his uncle, Abid Raza Ansari, both of whom have blamed PDP leadership for their ill-fate of their government.
Mohammad Abbas Wani, another PDP member, shared their views.
The PDP Vice-President, Sartaj Madni said the party was yet to take a decision on the erring MLAs.
“We will convene a meeting to decide,” Madni told The Kashmir Monitor.
The PDP’s Chief Spokesperson, Rafi Ahmad Mir, said the party would hold the meeting as soon as Mehbooba Mufti, the party’s President, returns to Kashmir.
“Mehbooba Ji is in New Delhi. She is returning within a day or two,” Mir said.
Leading the revolt against Mehbooba, Imran, who was a minister in her government, called her “incompetent” and accused her of nepotism. A day earlier, his uncle had made similar charges.
i Abid Ansari said he has not resigned from the party.
“If PDP sacks me, I will find an alternate, suitable route. So far, nobody questioned my stand,” he said.
Imran Ansari maintained his stand, saying, “PDP and the government had, of late, been reduced to a family opera, where the brothers, uncles, the aunties, and other relatives would play the protagonists. To continue with such a party was not only useless but a humiliation too.”
