Haji Parvaiz quits PDP, likely to join Apni Party

SRINAGAR: Senior political leader and founding member of PDP Haji Parvaiz on Friday parted his ways from the party along with hundreds of workers.

The resignation of PDP founding member Haji Parvaiz was followed by several other junior leaders and party workers.

The resignation of Haji Parvaiz from the People’s Democratic Party can be one of the biggest jolts to the party in Srinagar. Haji Parvaiz was a founding member of the PDP, which was formed in 1999 with the approval of the Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed as its President and Parvaiz was considered his beloved leader and worker.

Haji Parvaiz said he took the decision of quitting the party of his own and there was no compulsion. “I am representing my workers. If they don’t feel comfortable with the party, I have to respect their decision”, he said.

Haji Parvaiz said I have not decided yet to join any other party. “I will sit with my workers and take any concrete decision for the welfare of my people”, he added.

Meanwhile, reliable sources said that Haji Parvaiz will likely join Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari-led Apni Party in the coming days.
