Moreover, PDP received a major setback when former finance minister Haseeb A Drabu and former MLA Zadibal, Abid Ansari left the party recently.
Announcing his resignation on Twitter, Ansari had said the PDP has failed the people on all fronts and ‘I don’t want to be part of lies and deception’.
Former Finance Minister Drabu, in his letter to the PDP chief wrote, “Even though I have not been a dissident — you are aware I had resigned from the cabinet, assembly and party nearly two years ago which you didn’t accept — I have disengaged from the party affairs for quite some time now.”
