Srinagar 14 November (KNB): People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) senior political leader Muzafar Hussain Beigh announced his exit from the party during a press conference.
Muzaffar Hussain Baig dissociated from the party over the seat-sharing agreement with other parties of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD).
Addressing a press conference along with other leaders in Srinagar, he said, “NC is fighting on majority seats. It is not in interests of PDP. I respect Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and I wish them luck. I am leaving PDP on principle”.
Muzafar said that he was not consulted regarding seat-sharing agreement with PAGD affiliated parties.
“Today evening I called her (Mehbooba) and told her about resignation from PDP as a patron and a member,” he added.
He would consult his friends and well-wishers regarding his future strategy, Muzafar emphasised. (KNB)
