Groupism, factionalism within party leads to stunning developments…
Not a day of Bukharis in PDP…, one quits, other sulking over 'portfolio'
2/17/2017 11:56:24 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 17: It was not a day of the Bukharis in PDP even as one of them, Altaf Bukharis was re-inducted into the cabinet after 10 months. Ostensibly, peeved over change of portfolio, the sitting cabinet minister Basharat Bukhari resigned from the cabinet soon after the new portfolios were announced and the newly inducted minister was reported to be sulking, not happy with the portfolio allotted to him. Groupism and factionalism in the party is learnt to be attributed to shocking developments that unfolded in the aftermath of swearing in ceremony of Altaf Bukhari today.
Hours after it circulated as rumor in the political and government circles, it was confirmed by this evening that Basharat Bukhari has resigned as cabinet minister. Annoyed and upset at the allotted portfolio afresh, Bukhari made this move, much to embarrassment of the party high command, even as there was no word from the government with regard to development. In the minor reshuffle effected after re-induction of Altaf Bukhari into the cabinet today, Basharat Bukhari was given Horticulture portfolio, seen as less significant his hitherto held portfolio of Relief, Rehabilitation and Revenue.
The minor reshuffle, that remained a secret until afternoon not only stunned politicians and bureaucrats but wobbled Bukharis more than anyone else, as both were not expecting this 'change', sources within the party said. While it offended Basharat to the extent that he made a re
Shock laga!
The minor reshuffle, that remained a secret until Friday afternoon, not only stunned political and echelons of power but wobbled the Bukharis-Basharat Bukhari and Altaf Bukhari-more than anyone else, as both of them were not expecting this 'change'.
reat from the cabinet, Altaf too, who was expecting 'choicest' portfolio in comeback move, is far from being satisfied or content in getting far less 'ambitious' Education portfolio, sources said adding that Basharat has seen getting Horticulture more of a demotion as he has been holding very vital portfolios in the past including Law ministry as well. Sources said many in the party as well as in the political circles are attributing re- designing of portfolios to growing yet hidden under the wraps groupism and factionalism within the party which has started becoming explicit in action as well. This was during late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed's time too but he managed to curb and control it by dint of his political skills and experience, sources said. Basharat Bukhari's resignation too is being as ill advised and a decision taken in haste, sources said while explaining the common perception within the party where many feel this spontaneous reaction has only embarrassed the party and challenged in a way the decision of the high command, no matter what were actual reasons that prompted CM to take the decision.
Sources further said that Basharat Bukhari infact made a hasty retreat from the venue of oath ceremony at Rajbhawan here today even as he attributed it to some arguments with the security staff for entry of some of his acquaintances but now this move is not being seen as sheer coincidence, instead his annoyance over change of the portfolio he learnt during the day
