PDP expels two senior leaders for anti-party activities

SRINAGAR: The Peoples’ Democratic Party on Tuesday expelled two senior leaders — Basharat Bukhari and Peer Mohammad Hussain — for alleged anti party activities.

The two leaders were expelled by PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on the recommendation of disciplinary committee headed by vice president Abdul Rehman Veeri, a party leader said.

He said Bukhari and Hussain were facing charges of indulging in anti-party activities and found guilty by the disciplinary committee.

Bukhari, a two time MLA from Sangrama, is elder brother of slain journalist Shujaat Bukhari who was shot dead along with two personnel security officers by LeT terrorists in June this year.

Hussain, a former MLA from Shangus constituency, was a minister during PDP -Congress coalition Government in 2002. (AGENCIES)
