Srinagar: Nearly three months after the demise of its founder and patron Mufti Sayeed, PDP is poised for restructuring, for which the office bearers resigned from their posts on Saturday, ahead of the party forming the government in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.
The office bearers resigned to pave the way for restructuring of the party.
“The office bearers of Peoples Democratic Party — general secretaries Nizamudin Bhat, Rafi Ahmad Mir, Ved Mahajan, Mehboob Iqbal and political advisor to party president Peerzada Mansoor Hussain have resigned and relinquished their offices with immediate effect,” a PDP spokesman said.
“All the leaders have expressed full faith in the leadership of Mehbooba Mufti and have pledged support in the interest of party and people of the state,” he added.
The party is being restructured nearly three months after the sudden demise of Mufti Sayeed, who had founded it in 1999 and was its patron when he passed away.
Mehbooba, the PDP president who has taken full charge of the party, is all set to be sworn in as the first woman Chief Minister of the state on Monday after the three-month deadlock over government formation with the BJP ended last week.
