A BJP leader in New Delhi, however, termed Chief Minister Mufti's decision to sack her finance minister as a "setback" to the alliance as it could widen the gap between the two parties. It's not a political issue as far as I can see, I think we are barking at the wrong tree for the last 57 years by talking about the politics of it, that the political situation has never improved.

Drabu was removed from the cabinet after his speech in Delhi describing Kashmir as a social problem and not a political problem.

"It was made in the larger context of how our society has been ravaged and has impaired real-life situations and sensibilities especially of the youth", he said.

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday said Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Haseeb Drabu's exit from the Ministry "will not impact the coalition government in J&K".

Drabu also denied going against the PDP's stated political position. Drabu, he said, was often the bridge between the Jammu and Kashmir government and the Centre over a host of issues.

"There have been innuendoes that I said this or was made to say this with an ulterior motive".

"I will hold the review of departmental meeting and decide the priorities. When I was the Chairman of the J&K Bank, I used to lament the fact that while as around 40% of the shareholding of the bank was with Foreign Institutional Investors, not a single Indian Institution was invested with the bank". He was the public works (road and buildings) minister during the tenure of former CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

Remembering his association with late chief minister, Drabu said "not for nothing did he entrust me with the task of negotiating with the BJP and make me the pointsman for the alliance which was later continued by Mehbooba ji". So, his party (PDP) took the decision and I feel it is the right decision, Abdullah told reporters here.

There were reports that the coterie led by Mehbooba's maternal uncle and vice-president of PDP Sartaj Madni was unhappy with Drabu who was an authority in financial sector and was trying to stem out corruption by introducing the online system of payments by government departments.
