Shah-Faesal 2SRINAGAR : Former IAS officer Shah Faesal, who launched his political party Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM) in 2019, on Monday stepped down as the president of the party. He is likely to re-join the Jammu and Kashmir administration.
Sources said Shah Faesal may rejoin the civil service job, which he had quit in January 2019. They said the government has not accepted his resignation yet and there is every likelihood of Faesal re-joining the administration.

 Current Vice President Feroze Peerzada will take charge of the post till formal elections can be held for the post of president, read an official statement. Faesal had kickstarted his political journey officially by launching his political outfit JKPM on March 17, 2019, nine years after he became the first Kashmiri to top the UPSC civil services exam in 2009.
On Monday, in an online meeting of state executive committee of JKPM, the request of Faesal to be spared from the organisational responsibilities was discussed. A party statement read, “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 organisation.
