No plans to join any political party as of now: Shah Faesal

Srinagar, Jan 11 (PTK): IAS officer Shah Faesal, who has announced his resignation, Friday said he was willing to contest the upcoming parliamentary elections but would not be joining any political party “as of now”.

Addressing a press conference here, he ruled out the possibility of joining separatist Hurriyat Conference saying his experience in governance could not be used there.

Faesal, who has been in the limelight since becoming the first Kashmiri to top the civil services exam in 2009, announced his resignation on January 9 through social media to protest the “unabated” killings in Kashmir and the marginalisation of Indian Muslims. (PTK)
