Respected Doctor Sahib,
This is to tender my resignation from Central Working Committee, primary membership and any other position that I may be holding in the J&K National Conference. Please ask the Vice President, General Secretary and the two Provincial Presidents of Kashmir and Jammu to let my exit be as quiet and dignified as my entry was. I hope they will forget all the heated arguments and altercations I had with them all through the past ten years regularly. I realised that the only way to stop this bitterness was to quit. I expect them too to realise that nothing was and nothing is personal (sic.)
