Suspense continues over fate of Amitabh Mattoo , advisor to Chief Minister Mehhbooba Mufti who had submitted his resignation more than a month ago after being bad mouthed by a minister and refusal of Chief Minister to intervene in the matter.
There were speculations that Mattoo after attending some academic assignments in Australia would rejoin his post, which with it has cabinet status , but so far the academician-turn politician has not resumed his duties. Nor is there any word whether his resignation has been accepted or rejected by the Chief Minister.
Sources disclosed that there is a no indication which way the government wants to deal with issue as resignation of Matoo doesn’t have much of political bearings on the PDP . Its leadership thinks that the things can be okay without the advisor because there were no takers for his advice nor did he enjoy the patronage as he did during Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s rule .
It was after he convened a meeting of officers to update himself on Kashmiri Pandit migrants’ plight that it ruffled feathers of the relief and rehabilitation minister Basharat Bukhari for he is the cabinet minister incharge to deal with all these issues. He took offence to Mattoo trudging into his turf . That is where the things started worsening for Mattoo, who was already finding him not being utilized for the purpose he was appointed.
Being from the minority community, he had no shoulders to bank upon . That forces him to put in his papers , but those papers are lying unattended.
