PDP pulls out of UPA

Shujaat Bukhari

JAMMU: The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday formally dissociated itself from the United Progressive Alliance (UPA).

In a letter to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said: “In view of your arrangement with the National Conference, both in the State and in the UPA, you would appreciate our difficulty in continuing to be a part of the UPA.

“My party has decided to stay away from the arrangement as it has now become untenable for the PDP to continue in this alliance. Six years back, we had started a journey together against the backdrop of blood, mayhem, repression and despondency in Jammu and Kashmir. Today, there is enough indication on the ground to feel satisfied that the alliance turned out to be an enterprise of hope for the people of Jammu & Kashmir that you and Mufti Saheb had intended it to be.”
