In a letter addressed to PDP President and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Drabu said he had not been associating with party affairs for some time now.
He said since he had won elections on PDP ticket, he thought it morally incorrect to resign as long as the state Assembly was intact.
"Now that it is (Assembly) over, I am hereby resigning from the PDP," Drabu said in his letter.
