Drabu's sacking PDP's Internal Matter But Decision Right: Farooq

Dr Haseeb Drabu

"I was not accorded an opportunity to explain the context and the content of my speech", he said.

Mehbooba on Tuesday handed the finance portfolio to education minister Altaf Bukhari, who like Drabu has a good rapport with the BJP.

However, PDP leader said that he was not given any chance to explain his side of the story and added that he bore ill will against no one.

Further clarifying on the speech, Drabu stated that "My speech focused on the role of civil society in resolving the issue of Kashmir".

Rasheed accused that NC and PDP of making an issue out of Drabu's statement without being honest to the political dispute itself. They have been barking up the wrong tree for the last 50 or 70 years by talking about the politics of it; that the political situation has never improved.

The event was organised by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

After completing his schooling, he went to Oxford University for his undergraduate and later did a Ph.D.at Cambridge. He was renowned for his extraordinary capacity to visualise scientific solutions without calculation or experiment.

Bukhari had recently said that the PDP was not averse to snapping ties with the BJP if justice was not done to the family of an eight-year-old girl, who was abducted, raped and murdered in Kathua in January.

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. He said "If both these regional parties believe J&K to be a political dispute they must give up their agenda of autonomy and stress for United Nations resolutions".

The People's Democratic Party removed the state finance minister Haseeb Drabu from his post.

After the 2014 assembly elections in J&K threw up a fractured mandate, the PDP and the BJP entered into an alliance, the contours (popularly known as the "Agenda of Alliance") of which were worked out by Drabu and Madhav over several rounds of secretive meetings, which began after Mufti and the BJP leadership had taken the formal decision to form the government together.

In fact, along with the Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, the father of incumbent PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, the banker-turned-politician had played a major in the drafting of of a common agenda for the PDP-BJP alliance in the state. It is an internal matter of the PDP.
