Senior Peoples Democratic Party leader Qazi Mohammad Afzal, who was stripped of the Forest portfolio after rumours of corruption, submitted his resignation on Tuesday.
The minister, who was left with only the housing and urban development portfolio, tendered his resignation from the council of ministers.
Afzal sent his resignation to chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is likely to forward it to the state governor for acceptance. The chief minister divested Afzal of the ministry on Sunday following allegations of corruption in the forest department.
