Srinagar, November 14, 2020 (PPI-OT): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior political leader, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, today, quit People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Muzaffar Hussain Baig dissociated from the party over the seat-sharing agreement with other parties of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD).

Addressing a press conference along with other leaders in Srinagar, he said, “NC is fighting on majority seats. It is not in interests of PDP. I respect Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and I wish them luck. I am leaving PDP on principle.”

He also said that he was not consulted regarding seat-sharing agreement with PAGD affiliated parties. “Today evening I called her (Mehbooba) and told her about resignation from PDP as a patron and a member,” he added. He said that he would consult his friends and well-wishers regarding his future strategy.”
