Pro-India Kashmiri lawmaker and leader of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Tariq Karra tendered his resignation from the India’s parliament and his party on Thursday, after accusing the PDP of being a collaborator of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
“The PDP has become a collaborator for fascist RSS governed BJP Bharatiya Janata Party,” Karra told reporters.

Karra was one of the founding members of PDP, who was elected to the Lok Sabha in 2014 and was a close aide of the late Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed.
He is known as a prominent pro-India Kashmiri politician, who had always opposed the idea of a PDP-BJP alliance and even made his reservations known earlier also.
