Rebel PDP MLA quits party, likely to join Lone-led People’s Conference

SRINAGAR: Former PDP MLA from Tangmarg Mohammad Abbas Wani on Monday resigned from the basic membership of the party, a development expected following his support to a rebel group led by former minister Imran Ansari.
In a letter to party president Mehbooba Mufti, Wani informed her about his decision to resign from the basic membership of the party, a close aide of the former MLA said.
Led by Ansari, Wani was among the five MLAs who revolted against Mehbooba’s leadership in the wake of the PDP-BJP coalition Government falling apart in June.
He is the fourth PDP leader to have announced his resignation from the party. (AGENCIES)
