Sri­na­gar: After the res­ig­na­tion of two se­nior min­is­ters, cri­sis within Peo­ple’s Demo­cratic Party (PDP) is likely to ag­gra­vate as party’s leg­is­la­tor from Sri­na­gar Abid Hus­sain blamed PDP’s se­nior min­is­ter and gov­ern­ment spokesper­son Naem Akhtar for chaos in the party.

The leg­is­la­tor from Zadibal con­stituency in Sri­na­gar—also an un­cle of Im­ran Raza Ansari, who re­signed as cab­i­net min­is­ter-- ac­cused Akhtar of be­ing on a mis­sion to ruin PDP. The storm within PDP, Hus­sain said, also puts a ques­tion mark on party’s prospects in up­com­ing par­lia­men­tary polls, mu­nic­i­pal and Pan­chayat elec­tions.

Last week, rein­duc­tion of Altaf Bukhari in the cab­i­net and reshuf­fle of port­fo­lios ex­posed the fragility within PDP, when two se­nior cab­i­net min­is­ters Basharat Bukhari, who held the port­fo­lio of Rev­enue, Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and Re­lief and was now as­signed Hor­ti­cul­ture and Im­ran Raza Ansari, Sports and Science and Tech­nol­ogy Min­is­ter re­signed. Sup­port­ers of an­other PDP leg­is­la­tor Abdul Ma­jid Pad­der were protest­ing de­mand­ing cab­i­net berth for their con­stituency’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive.
