Haseeb Drabu's PDP Leader exit will not affect allianve in govt: BJP

Media reports said that Chief Minister after deliberations with her party leaders, made a decision to give additional charge of Finance to Bukhari.

When contacted Syed Altaf Bukari confirmed to that he has entrusted with additional responsibility of Finance Department.

In a statement, he said: "The decision to drop me did come as a surprise, but the manner and method of communicating it what was shocking". While I understand and accept the decision of the party, to take to the media before talking to me was painful.

The statement is against the PDP's stand that Kashmir is a political issue that needs a political settlement.What Drabu said is somewhat similar to the BJP's stand that Kashmir is not a political issue but a law and order problem, and that the only point of contention is the occupation of Pakistan-administered Kashmir by Pakistan. "I was not accorded the opportunity to explain the context and the content of my speech".

Speaking at an event themed "Kashmir: The Way Forward" at New Delhi, Drabu was quoted by media saying that people need to introspect over nature and origins of situation in the state and how it can be resolved. But the onus is on politicians who space public opinion to some extent, words once said can't be taken back. At a personal level, for me and my family, it is Déja vu! "I will look into the issue and assure you that nothing will be changed in the policy", he said.

Mr Drabu, who is considered close to the BJP leadership, expressed gratitude to Chief Minister Mufti for giving him the opportunity to contribute towards accomplishing the PDP mission.

Along with BJP general secretary Ram Madhav, Drabu was involved in stitching together the alliance between the two parties - one of which (BJP) draws its strength mainly from the Hindu-dominated Jammu region while the other (PDP) is more Kashmir-centric in its political outlook.

The former journalist said he wanted "to put the record straight", making it clear he wouldn't be the fall guy for the deeply unpopular PDP-BJP alliance in the state.

After the controversy broke out, Drabu said he tried to reach Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti over the issue but failed to get an audience. Although it's an internal matter of the PDP but his statement of Kashmir not being a political issue was condemned by everyone cutting across the party lines in Kashmir, he said.
