National Conference patron and parliamentarian Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday said that ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took a right decision of sacking Haseeb Drabu from the cabinet after his remarks “Kashmir is not a political issue”.

In a guarded reply, Farooq said amid mounting criticism from various political parties over Drabu’s remarks, PDP took a right decision to sack him from the cabinet.

While saying that Drabu was the chief architect of implementing GST in the state, Abdullah told reporters at NC headquarters in Srinagar: “His party saw that it is an issue. All political parties in the state criticised his remarks”.

“... He had also implemented GST here... So his party took decision ... And I feel it is the right decision taken by his party,” he said.
