Early Times Report
anantnag, Feb 7: Signaling 'All isn't well' in ruling People's Democratic Party, dozens of active workers of Anantnag Assembly segment skipped party's welcome reception held for Chief Minister's maternal uncle and newly appointed Vice President Sartaj Madni.
Insiders privy to development told Early Times that workers of Anantnag assembly segment didn't turned up at venue to welcome the vice-president Sartaj Madni reportedly to show displeasure to the party leadership.
"There is already a divide and most of the workers who took active part in By-election are angry with the leadership for sideling their leader," sources said.
They said that most of the workers who attended the 'welcome reception' where from far-off areas. "Workers had come from Dooru, Devsar, Kokernag and other areas attended the function but other workers weren't spotted," they added.
Party South Kashmir Coordinator, Mufti Sajad who was also missing in the function, established the fact that all is not going well in the party despite accommod
ting the defeated candidates in Corporations.
SKICC has lot of resources, and a separate FDR tuning to an amount of around Rs 10 lakhs was kept for the purpose of providing pension to retiring employees. But it is so unfortunate that Director is spending lavishly and the pension amount has almost exhausted as amount has been drawn after liquidating the FDR.
One of the youth leader claimed that party leadership has deliberately sidelined one of the leader, who according them was managing Anantnag Assembly segment in last two years. "Workers have aligned themselves with the leader who is upset with the Chief Minister and is currently staying in Jammu," he said.
He claimed that local intelligence group of Police too had mentioned it in its today's daily report that workers of Anantnag constituency boycotted the function.
However, close associates of PDP Vice President Sartaj Madni suggested that all is going well and around 800 workers of the district attended the function held at Dak Banglow Khanabal.
Pertinent to mention here, on January 2nd of this year, around 200 workers of the constituency clashed with party officers bearers during a meeting held at Housing Colony Khanabal and accused them of 'betrayal'. Since then the workers are boycotting functions of Party in Anantnag and even have threatened to launch poll drive against the party candidate.
