PDP vice-president, office-bearers submit resignation to Mehbooba Mufti

All office-bearers of the Peoples Democratic Party submitted their resignation to party president and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday, hours after Sartaj Madni resigned as the party’s vice-president.

PDP spokesman Rafi Mir said all office-bearers of the party including the vice president, general secretaries and treasurers have resigned. The spokesman said the resignations were “aimed at revamping the party”.

Sources in the party said the PDP president was planning to restructure the party and some key position would be given to the members, who were senior ministers in the PDP-BJP coalition government.

The PDP has been facing an internal crisis after several legislators came out in open rebellion against Mehbooba Mufti, accusing her of playing to the dictation of a coterie of relatives around her.

While the PDP had maintained a silence over Madni’s resignation, party sources said the party president had asked him to step down to pacify the dissenting voices within the party.
