PDP removes Drabu over his Kashmir remarks

Dr Haseeb A Drabu After Drabu says K-issue not political, angry PDP raps him

"If J&K is not a political issue, then has the Centre appointed Dineshwar Sharma as the interlocutor".

The chief minister wrote a letter to Governor N N Vohra, advising him to drop Drabu from the council of ministers.

Speaking on the occasion, NC Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani hit out at the PDP for "fooling" the people of the State for nearly two decades by seeking their personal political empowerment by exploiting the political sentiment that they are now openly ridiculing.

Around 130 ambassadors, government officials and business leaders attended the event.

The Opposition National Conference criticised Drabu's comments and asked the ruling party to explain his statements, Rising Kashmir reported.

Drabu had remarked during a function in New Delhi that "Kashmir is not a political issue or a conflict". JKLF chairman said that HaseebDrabu is saying that "everyone who thinks Kashmir is a political problem is a fool".

Separatist Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front leader Yasin Malik said Drabu's statement was aimed at distorting history. It is a society which has social issues right now.

Jammu and Kashmir Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu resigned from his post after his comment that the dispute in the state was "not political" created a controversy.

The "arrogance" of the minister had led the party workers knocking the doors of Mehbooba Mufti, and two meetings followed after that, one each in Srinagar and Jammu.

Malik alleged "Drabu renounced resistance movement for his petty selfish gain and switched over to other side of the divide and joined Indian political system".

PDP vice president Mohammad Sartaj Madni flayed Drabu and said Kashmir was a political issue and the PDP was pursuing its resolution.

There were reports that the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti may summon Drabu after her return from Delhi.

Drabu will be the first senior leader to be removed from the cabinet. "Will be interesting to see who replaces him in the Finance Ministry", Omar said in a tweet. Lately, he was considered closer to the alliance partner BJP than the PDP. Sources said the party workers had complained that the former finance minister was ignoring even his own constituency.
