Srinagar, Jul 23: PDP vice president Sartaj Madni has submitted his resignation as vice president of the party.
Talking to a news agency, Madni said “I have submitted my resignation to party president Mehbooba Mufti in the larger interests of the party and for its strengthening, stability and unity.”
It is in place to mention here that PDP dissidents including former sports minister Imran Raza Ansari were questioning the occupation of party’s vice presidency by maternal uncle of party president Mehbooba Mufti. They were alleging that occupation of the party’s top position by Mehbooba’s maternal uncle is part of the dynasty politics being imposed in the party.
Clarifying the charges of the PDP dissidents, Madni said “I have resigned from the party’s vice presidency for strengthening the party as otherwise I too have worked in founding and strengthening the party.”
Recently, top PDP leader and Member parliament Muzafar Hussain Baig has said that party president Mehbooba Mufti should take some tangible actions on the grievances of some descanting voices within the party. (KNS)
