Srinagar: Former minister Advocate Abdul Haq Khan, who severed his ties with PDP on Sunday said the party’s “indifferent” approach towards him was the reason for his bidding good-bye to the party.

The party’s “indifferent approach” pushed me to stay away from PDP which is beset with internal crisis, he said, as per news agency KNS.

“From quite some time the affairs within the party were not going well. The seniors within the party are being treated indifferently … that led to my resignation,” he said.

“Party has nominated a new constituency in-charge who will now look after the affairs. I was not taken on board about the decision. I don’t think I will contribute to politics in the present political scenario,” Khan said and added, “I want to take rest now”.

Khan was considered a close confidante of PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and had been Parliamentary Affairs minister in the Mufti-led PDP government. Khan represented Lolab constituency in north Kashmir’s Kupwara.

Khan, however, expressed gratitude to the people of Lolab constituency. “I am grateful to my people who gave me love, respect and support in tough times,” he added.

“My workers have endorsed my decision to quit PDP,” he said and added, “So far I have not decided about the future.”

On Saturday, Khan in his statement had said “I announce in no uncertain terms that in view of the current political situation, I have suspended my political activities definitively and completely. From today onwards, I have no association with my previous political party, i.e PDP, and my statement should be considered as my resignation.”
