Shah Faesal steps down as JKPM president, likely to rejoin government service
Shah Faesal has reportedly resigned as the president of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (KMPM).
Shah Faesal — who had topped the 2010 Civil Services Exam — has reportedly resigned as the president of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (KMPM). The reports of Shah Faesal resigning from the post of JKPM president comes a few days after he released from the detention.
“It is confirmed that he has decided to step down and the leaders of the party have hence given the responsibility to run the affair to me,” said Feroz Peerzada, JKPM senior leader was quoted as saying to India Today.
There are reports stating that Shah Faesal is likely to join back administration. Notably, the authorities have not accepted his resignation yet.
Surprisingly, after submitting his resignation and launching his a political front, Shah Faesal’s name was not removed from the list of IAS office in J&K.
“We don’t know what exactly he will do. He has been talking about going for studies to the United States. There are also reports of his joining back the administration. We don’t know exactly as of now,” added Feroz Peerzada.
On Monday, Shah Faesal deleted his description as the president of JKPM from his twitter bio, which gives us hints that he is likely to join back the service.
In 2018, in order to study further, Shah Faesal had taken a subbatical of one year and had gone to the US. Soon after his return from the US, he decided to form his own Political party. His dream of running a politcal party shattered when the BJP-led government decided to remove the special status of J&K in August by scrapping Article 370.
Dozens of political leaders were detained and Shah Faisal was also arrested from the Delhi airport. After spending close to a year in detention he was recently released.
