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.
