Srinagar: In yet major turn of events, Jammu and Kashmir's bureaucrat-turned-politician Shah Faesal resigned from politics on Monday.

State Executive Committee of J&K Peoples Movement (JKPM) in an online meeting today discussed the ongoing political developments in the state, reports Kashmir Age.

After quitting civil service, Shah had formed the Jammu and Kashmir People's Movement.

Faisal is a 2010 civil services exam topper.

 In a statement today, the party was quoted as saying by NDTV, "Dr Shah Faesal had informed State Executive Members that he is not in a position to continue with political activities and wants to be freed from the responsibilities of the organization."

"Keeping in view this request, it was decided to accept his request so that he can better continue with his life and contribute whichever way he chooses," the statement read.
