Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Feb 17: A young MLA from south Kashmir was set to be inducted into the cabinet on Friday, but his name was dropped after objections from various leaders of the PDP.
Many MLAs from south and central Kashmir were making efforts to be part of the cabinet. Some of them are two time legislators while some had been ministers in the Mufti Mohammad Sayeed-led government.
Keeping an eye on the upcoming bypolls for Anantnag and Srinagar Parliamentary seats, PDP MLA from Srinagar's Amira Kadal constituency Altaf Bukhari, who was a minister in the previous Mufti Sayeed-led government, was Friday inducted by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in her Council of Ministers as she carried out her first Cabinet expansion. Bukhari was given the Education Department portfolio while in the previous government headed by Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, he was heading the Roads and Building Department.
Bukhari was earlier dropped for his closeness to BJP camp during around three month long stalemate on government between allies-PDP and BJP-following demise of Mufti Sayeed. The PDP has still one cabinet berth for which there has been fighting within the party leaders.

Divided party?
"A young MLA from south Kashmir and close confidant of Mehbooba Mufti whose name was dropped after objections from various leaders over his inclusion into cabinet. He was to be inducted as minister of state," a PDP leader said.
oba Mufti whose name was dropped after objections from various leaders over his inclusion into cabinet. The Chief Minister does not want fighting between leaders keeping in view of upcoming polls," a senior PDP leader said.
"He was to be inducted as minister of state. But many leaders raised objections over his inclusion into the cabinet as a two time MLA from south Kashmir and former minister of state from same area were not included into the cabinet," the PDP leader said.
Sources said besides another MLA from south Kashmir was also making efforts to be part of the cabinet. Two other prominent faces of Srinagar, Khurshid Alam and Mohammad Ashraf Mir, according to sources, were making all efforts to get the portfolio of minister of state. "It was expected that their inclusion may strengthen the PDP in the Srinagar Parliamentary seat. But they were told earlier that they won't be included into the cabinet," the leader said.
Another face from central Kashmir, Javid Mustafa Mir, who has been dropped from the Mehbooba Mufti led government seems upset with the party. "He didn't make any effort to be included into the cabinet nor he attends the party meetings," sources said. Mir was Revenue Minister in the Mufti Mohammad Sayeed-led Cabinet.
