Statement from Syed Altaf Bukhari

SRINAGAR, Jan 19: Former finance minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari has said: “It has been a long association with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) especially with its founder Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed Sahib. My association with this party has been enriching in many ways. It not only gave me a chance to work for my constituency but provided me an opportunity to contribute my bit in the development across the nook and corner of the state.

While I am happy over the party’s decision but the reasons given for my expulsion are debatable. During my journey of active politics I have witnessed agreements and disagreements, gratification and obstructions, brewing resentment and misguided notions. Power and position have never been an allurement for me as the history bears a testimony to that fact. During this brief stint of my active politics I also got a chance to witness the downfall of so called popular leaders and rise of those who were hitherto unknown in the arena of politics. I am also equally happy for this decision of the party as my conscience is clean and I never compromised on my principles. I wish the J&K PDP all the very best!”

A detailed press briefing will be convened very soon.
