Srinagar, Mar 22 (KNS): Former minister and senior politician Sued Basharat Bukhari is all set to join People’s Democratic Party, sources said here on Friday. He will return to the PDP after over 5 years. 

Sources close to Bukhari told KNS that he will very soon join the PDP after holding deliberations with the party leadership.

In December 2018, Bukhari joined the National Conference after being expelled from the PDP.

Again in 2021, he left the National Conference and joined Sajad Lone led People’s Conference, from where he was also expelled in June last year.

He has also held various positions at party levels and also served as cabinet minister holding various portfolios including Law, Justice, Revenue, Parliamentary Affairs, Horticulture, Disaster Management, Relief, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir. 

He served as member of Legislative Council and member of Legislative Assembly from Sangrama assembly segment. (KNS)
