New Delhi: The Peoples Democratic Party leader and former Jammu and Kashmir Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu quit the party on Thursday.

Drabu has been upset with the party leadership ever since he was dropped from the council of ministers for saying that Kashmir “isn’t a political issue".

Tweeting his resignation letter addressed to party chief Mehbooba Mufti, Drabu said he has been distancing himself from party affairs for some time, though his resignation from his ministerial post and the party two years back had been rejected.

Drabu said that since he had won the elections on PDP ticket, it was morally incorrect to resign as long as the state assembly was intact.

“Now that it (Assembly) is over, I am hereby resigning from the PDP,” he said in his letter, referring to the dissolution of the Assembly by governor Satya Pal Malik on November 22.
