CM removes FM Haseeb Drabu from cabinet post Kashmir remarks

CM removes FM Haseeb Drabu from cabinet post Kashmir remarks

The chief minister wrote a letter to Governor N N Vohra, advising him to drop Drabu from the council of ministers.

At a function in New Delhi on Friday, Drabu was quoted as having said "Kashmir should not be seen as a conflict state or a political problem but as a society with social issues".

The PDP's chief spokesperson Rafi Ahmad Mir warned of action against Drabu if he did not retract his statement.

Drabu made the statement at an event titled "Kashmir: The way forward" in New Delhi on March 10. "As if everything he did has some or the other intervention from BJP and Ram Madhav", a senior minister in PDP-BJP government told Firstpost from Jammu on Monday. "Therefore you are advised to explain as to why statement detrimental to the party interests was made", said Veeri. The minister's statement had drawn criticism from the political fraternity of the state.

Drabu, while speaking at the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry event, had said that the issue in Kashmir is not political.

Separatist Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front leader Yasin Malik said Drabu's statement was aimed at distorting history.

He said the party recognies Jammu and Kashmir as a political issue, and ever since its advent, it has relentlessly been pursuing its resolution through reconciliation and dialogue, both at internal and external levels.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti reportedly agreed with party leaders that Haseeb Drabu had crossed the line.

"First the PDP violated the mandate of 2014 by entering into an opportunistic alliance with a party it had sought votes against and today the same party finally lets the cat out of the bag by declaring everything it stood for till now was apparently akin to "barking up the wrong tree" as said by Dr. Haseeb Drabu".

The JKLF Chairman said it is this hypocritical attitude Haseeb Drabu like educated people who advocated Freedom through their ideas especially write-ups and articles that are even now available on internet, which invoked thousands of young and old to join freedom struggle and sacrifice their lives for it.

He was also the point man for the PDP that negotiated and drafted Agenda of Alliance between the PDP and the BJP.
