Senior PDP leader Tariq Karra on Thursday announced his resignation from the party and Parliament, accusing the PDP of being a collaborator with the RSS.

“The PDP has become a collaborator for fascist RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh)-governed BJP,” Karra told reporters here.

Elected to the Lok Sabha in 2014, Karra was a close aide of the late Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed and was one of the founding members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He had always opposed the idea of a PDP-BJP alliance and made his dissent known earlier also.

The resignation comes as the Kashmir Valley is battling months of the deadliest unrest it has suffered in six years. Over 80 people have been killed and thousands injured in clashes with security forces.

    Poor choice of words , reflects lack of vision ! A comparison of the GDP of JandK with other states brings out the reality, the rest of country is not impacted at all ! This should be an eye-opener as the Indian state can persist with clamp-down almost endlessly, but that will impact the law abiding citizens of JandK for no fault of theirs. Jammu, Ladakh will continue to progress, and be ever more tightly integrated with the rest of country .
