"I was not accorded the opportunity to explain the context and the content of my speech".

"In pursuance of Rule 5 of Jammu and Kashmir government Business rules and as an interim measure, I Mehbooba Mufti, do hereby assign the charge of the departments of the Finance, Labour and Employment to Syed Muhammad Altaf Bukhari in addition to the government business already assigned to him", read the order of the CM.

He is the first senior leader removed from the cabinet and the request by Mufti was accepted by the governor N.N. Vohra.

Further clarifying on the speech, Drabu stated that "My speech focused on the role of civil society in resolving the issue of Kashmir".

However, politics in Jammu and Kashmir is nothing if not full of surprises - after all, didn't the "nationalist" BJP join hands with the "pro-separatist" (an oft-mentioned charge) PDP for the sake of power in J&K?

"I tried to make the point that Kashmir was not only a political issue to be resolved by the nation state of India and the successive governments at the centre and the state, but that there is a social issue that needs to be resolved at the level of the civil society".

Speaking at an event themed "Kashmir: The Way Forward" at New Delhi, Drabu was quoted by media saying that people need to introspect over nature and origins of situation in the state and how it can be resolved. "I finally got a call to meet the CM at 7.15 pm", Drabu said in a statement.

Along with BJP general secretary Ram Madhav, Drabu was involved in stitching together the alliance between the two parties - one of which (BJP) draws its strength mainly from the Hindu-dominated Jammu region while the other (PDP) is more Kashmir-centric in its political outlook.

He also recalled how the terms and conditions based on which the current PDP-BJP alliance was formed, the Agenda of alliance, was drafted under his guidance.

In fact, along with the Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, the father of incumbent PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, the banker-turned-politician had played a major in the drafting of of a common agenda for the PDP-BJP alliance in the state. "Every single meeting, discussion and negotiations were done with the knowledge and consent of the patron and the president". It is an internal matter of the PDP.
