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.
