2 more PDP leaders may leave party

Two more Peoples Democratic Party leaders, including Baramulla MLA Javaid Baigh and MLC Yasir Reshi, have hinted at leaving the party and supporting the three MLAs who earlier revolted against president Mehbooba Mufti, thereby setting a stage for vertical divide in the party.

“I am in complete conformity with the views expressed recently by my esteemed colleagues to find an alternative to the traditional two-family system,” said Mr. Reshi.

Javaid Beigh claimed Ms. Mufti “lost the link with New Delhi” after she ousted senior leader Haseeb Drabu from the Cabinet.

Ms. Mufti, who is in New Delhi, will be arriving in Srinagar soon to take a call on the rebellion within the party. She has 28 MLAs in the 87-member Assembly.
