Senior PDP leader Muzafar Hussain Beigh resigns

Srinagar (NVI): Senior People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Muzaffar Hussain Beigh today quit from the party over a seat-sharing agreement with other parties of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD).

According to Beigh, National Conference (NC) is fighting on the majority of seats which is not in the interest of PDP. “I respect Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and I wish them luck,” he said.

He said that he was not consulted regarding the seat-sharing agreement with PAGD affiliated parties.

He resigned from the party by conveying his decision to PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti via telephone.
