SRINAGAR: National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah on Wednesday welcomed the resignation of IAS topper Shah Faesal by calling it as a “loss to bureaucracy and gain to politics”
“The bureaucracy’s loss is politics’ gain. Welcome to the fold @shahfaesal,” Omar wrote on Twitter as reports of Faesal’s resigned started doing the rounds.
“Actually I welcomed him to the fold of politicians. His future political plans are his to announce,” Omar said in another tweet, while responding to reports that Faesal was likely to join National Conference.
Earlier, Faesal said that he had resigned from the service to protest “unabated killings in Kashmir and the lack of any sincere reach-out from the Union Government”.
