Altaf Bukhari replaces Dr Hasseb Drabu as Finance Minister

Altaf Bukhari replaces Dr Hasseb Drabu as Finance Minister”

The chief minister, who returned from the national capital to Jammu, shot off a letter to the state Governor N N Vohra requesting him to drop Drabu from her council of ministers with immediate effect, PDP sources said. He was the economic adviser to the state during the PDP-Congress coalition that came to power after the 2002 elections.

However, the uneasiness in relations with Mehbooba Mufti crept in after Drabu's wife had charged the CM in 2015 with "killing of children, criminal blinding and maiming of protesters, besides shameless suffocating of an entire population" during the violence following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

Since yesterday, pressure was mounting on Drabu, who played a key role in stitching an alliance with the BJP during Mufti Mohammed Sayeeds tenure earlier and again when Mehbooba Mufti became the chief minister, after newspapers published his remarks that people were "barking up the wrong tree" as the Kashmir issue was not a political issue. "Drabu has said that it is not just a political problem only but a social problem as well", said Kaul. Moreover, a section of party leadership was miffed with the arrogant style of functioning of Drabu, who they alleged used insulting and terse remarks while communicating with party members. "It is in this we seek your help", the economist-turned-politician said at the Delhi event.

Haseeb Drabu, MLA from Pulwama district's Rajpora constituency, started his career in 1990 with the Planning Commission of India. After Drabu's recent statement, Malik, came down heavily on him.

This did not sit well with the leaders in Jammu and Kashmir, and as a result of this, Mehbooba Mufti sacked Drabu on Monday and dropped him from the PDP. "I pay salaries amounting to Rs 22,000 crore to 4.5 lakh government employees, who do absolutely no work", Drabu said.

Sources told Rising Kashmir that after dicussion Chief Minister has made a decision to give additional charge of Finance to Altaf Bukhari.
