Hoping to be retained, PDP leader waited for 4 days before quitting

Early Times Report
Jammu, June 23: Even as the PDP leaders who were enjoying political posts tried to submit their resignations at an earliest before the presidential rule in the state would ask them to unceremoniously leave the chair, one of the youth leaders of the ousted party, waited for four days before tendering his resignation.
Sources said the leader was firmly believing that the Governor would him continue at a pivotal post in the sports council.
Sources said the leader was thinking that his appointment should not be treated as political one but in the interest of the state. "The post he was holding is usually not considered a political appointment and thus he remained in an impression that he would be allowed to work as usual," said a source adding "This was why it took him four days to make up his mind to call it a day."
Sources said even at the eleventh hour, the PDP leader wanted to personally handover the resignation at the Raj Bhawan hoping that the new dispensation would be sympathetic towards him, something which didn't materialize.
Sources said the leader was upset to have lost the chair which was allegedly fetching him fortunes.
Though till 2016, the post in sports council was not never given to a politician, it was for the first time that this politician was given the chair.
Officials said the government used the unrest in Kashmir in July 2016 to elevate the PDP leader to the chair. "The appointment was done in violation of the protocol and in the garb of Kashmir unrest, so there was no chance of his getting extension in the Governor's rule. What is wrong is wrong," said a senior official in the sports department.
Some of the PDP leaders are already in news for trying to gain mileage even out of tendering resignation.
Social media recently broke into humor, when a woman PDP leader, barely a week ahead of her term-end as chairperson of women's right commission, resigned after the collapse of the government and glorified having tendered her resignation.
Many of the netizens said even if she hadn't resigned, she would have been "kicked out".
For many of the PDP leaders tendering resignation from the political posts that are already over is the new "style statement".
A senior official in the Civil Secretariat said such leaders were trying to gain political mileage out of simple formality. "Otherwise also their term was over as their chair ceased to exist. Why to create a glorify submission of resignation which is just a formality," the official told Early Times.
Despite repeated attempts the PDP leaders couldn't be contacted for comments.
