Srinagar: The resignation of IAS topper Shah Faesal baffled some and amused others. People from different shades of society reacted over his resignation. Here are some of the reactions that came from the people on social media.
Omar Abdullah welcomed his entry into politics saying that: “The bureaucracy’s loss is politics’ gain. Welcome to the fold Shah Faesal. Actually, I welcomed him to the fold of politicians. His future political plans are his to announce.”
Mehboob Makhdoomi, who along with Shah Faesal co-authored an article on Kashmir, tweeted: “My prayers have not been answered as I conveyed in my last two posts. I tried my best to stop him from going into this gutter. But then it’s his life. And, I vehemently call his decision ‘preposterous’ and advise everybody else to refrain from joining the collaborators. All the flak that I got would’ve been worthwhile if I were to succeed. Pro-India politics is anti-Kashmir politics, with no ‘ifs’ & ‘buts’. You’ve hurt us all. And if you too are disgusted, don’t go out to vote.”
Basant Rath, the popular cop wished best of luck to him. “All the best, Doctor. Do incredibly good things for our people. In case you need anything, you know I’m just a text away.”
National Conference leader, Tanvir Sadiq while wishing best to Shah Faesal for all his future endeavours said that they all hope and pray that his thoughts and experiences will help guide this trouble-torn state towards peace and prosperity. (CNS)
