Jammu, February 17

Senior Peoples Democratic Party minister Bashrat Ahmed Bukahari resigned on Friday.  

Although there is no official word yet on his reasons for having quit his position, the development comes after Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s Cabinet underwent a reshuffle. Bukhari, who had previously headed the Revenue, Relief and Rehabilitation Ministry, was given horticulture instead.

Mufti expanded her Cabinet earlier on Friday by inducting senior PDP leader Syed Altaf Bukhari, who was dropped when she took over the government 10 months ago when her father, the late chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, died.

Syed Bukhari is the legislator from Amira Kadal constituency in Srinagar and the Roads and Buildings Minister when Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was chief minister in 2015. (With inputs from agencies)
