Media reports said that Chief Minister after deliberations with her party leaders, chose to give additional charge of Finance to Bukhari.

When contacted Syed Altaf Bukari confirmed to that he has entrusted with additional responsibility of Finance Department.

After dropping Drab, PDP has already said that it will take a decision whether he will be a part of the party in the coming days.

In a statement, he said: "The decision to drop me did come as a surprise, but the manner and method of communicating it what was shocking. I was not accorded the opportunity to explain the context and the content of my speech", he said in a statement. The political situation has never improved.

The PDP leadership was apparently annoyed with Drabu for dismissing the political nature of the Kashmir issue although he himself had in the agenda of alliance got the clause inserted for political resolution of the problem by holding dialogue with all stake holders including the separatists who have been making anti-India statements and maligning the Indian Army and security forces. There is no scope to call J&K a political issue if United Nations resolutions are not taken into consideration unless all the three parties do agree to some resolution outside United Nations resolutions.

"As for my understanding of the political ideology of PDP, it is based on my drafting of various election manifestoes, the aspirational agenda, and the all-important Self Rule document, which Mufti Sahib involved me in", he said.

The architect of the PDP's alliance with the BJP in 2015, Drabu triggered a political storm after his controversial remark over Kashmir during a New Delhi conference on March 9, which led to his sacking.

Drabu's remarks at a meeting in Delhi to promote economy of the state had created a controversy giving an opportunity to his detractors to make Mehbooba take the extreme step of sacking her trusted minister.

"Most of it what has happened is due to PDP's internal developments".
