A district development council (DDC) member of the People's Democratic Party from north Kashmir's Bandipora district on Tuesday resigned from the basic membership of the party.
News agency KNO reported that Abdul Gani Wani, who had emerged victorious in the recently held DDC polls from Bonakoot constituency on PDP's ticket, sent his resignation letter to party general secretary today.
Wani said in the letter that he had decided "after thorough deliberations with party workers to resign from the party" saying it was "not an easy decision since I have been part of this party since long."
"Having support and honour of my colleague of party I'll be always thankful and surely feel upset that I'm resigning from the PDP party. I'll be always thankful to people who have encouraged and supported me," the letter reads.
