‘Demands and aspirations of Jammu region disregarded’
Jammu, Oct 22: In a jolt to the ruling People’s Democratic Party, senior leader Vikramaditya Singh today announced his resignation from the party, saying it wasn’t possible for him to continue with the PDP which “disregarded the demands and aspirations of Jammu region”.
Singh, the grandson of the last Dogra ruler Maharaja Hari Singh, had joined the PDP in presence of the late party president Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on August 2015. He was a member of the state legislative council.
“I have sent my resignation to party president Mehbooba Mufti with a request to accept it immediately. I feel that it is neither morally nor ethically right for me to continue as a member of the PDP,” Singh said. (KNS)
