Jammu, February 20,2017 CNS: Aggrieved PDP leader and MLA Sangrama, who earlier resigned after getting horticulture portfolio following a reshuffle in the cabinet, on Monday joined back as the horticulture minister, reports said.

     Confirming the development Syed Basharat Bukhari told news agency CNS that after an hour long meeting with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, he rejoined the Cabinet and took charge of the Horticulture portfolio.

    “Yes, I have taken the charge of Horticulture Ministry,” Bukhari said.
