Struggling with pollen allergy. Basharat Bukhari

Srinagar: Disgruntled minister from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Basharat Bukhari today clarified  that his resignation on being assigned the horticulture ministry came only because of a pollen allergy and not because of some differences with the party.

“l have a pollen allergy since childhood. And you must know horticulture is all about pollens.” Bukhari told Dapaan dismissing assertions that he was annoyed after being divested of ministries for Revenue, Disaster Management, Relief, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction.

“I love flowers but not the pollen associated with it. In the past I have had many close shaves,” Bukhari explained adding that he had written a letter to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti giving a detailed description about his allergy.

A statement issued by PDP said it has arranged a special dose of anti-allergens for Bukhari, following which he joined the ministry happily.

“Baji (Mehbooba Mufti) had suggested Bukhari sahib to wear a mask but I convinced her that we should get some anti-allergens for our colleague,” Tassaduq Mufti, a newly inducted PDP leader and brother of chief minister told Dapaan in a telephonic interview. “Let him resume the work anti-allergens will be administered soon.”

Meanwhile, Bukhari has joined the office in Jammu and sources said he was covering his face with his hat often to avoid the allergy.
