The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday expelled former J&K minister Basharat Bukhari and senior leader Peer Mohammad Hussain from the party. The party also removed another senior leader from Jammu region, Mehboob Iqbal, from the post of party general secretary.
Bukhari and Hussain were expelled a day before they were supposed to join the National Conference (NC).
“Yes, they (Bukhari and Hussain) have been expelled for anti-party activities,” PDP vice-president Abdul Rehman Veeri told The Indian Express. “Similarly, Mehboob Iqbal has been removed as party general secretary for his activities. A decision about his future will be taken soon.”
