SRINAGAR: A day after former revenue minister and MLA Sangrama, Syed Basharat Buhari, resigned from the Mehbooba Mufti led PDP-BJP cabinet, the ruling PDP camp witnessed marathon meetings and visits disgruntled Bukhari at his Srinagar residence to resolve the crises.

Sources within the PDP divulged that on Saturday, a top group of PDP politicians including party vice-president Sartaj Madani, Rafi Ahmad Mir and several others visited Bukhari at his residence in Srinagar – trying to persuade him to rethink about the resignation decision.

It was divulged that closed door meetings between the senior PDP members and Basharat Bukhari lasted for several others behind the closed doors.

“The meeting primarily focused to pacify the aggrieved Bukhari so that he could re-think about the decision of bidding adieu to the state cabinet in a jiffy,” sources privy to the development told KNS.
