After threats from PDP, Centre succumbs
'Ceasefire decision in J&K likely to backfire'

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 16: The BJP led NDA government at the Centre has made yet another attempt to appease it's ally Peoples Democratic Party in Jammu and Kashmir by announcing ceasefire in Ramadan month.
A Home Ministry statement said that security forces have been told not to launch operations in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month.
The demand for announcing truce was raised by the PDP after the recently held All Party Meeting in Srinagar. Bharatiya Janata Party leaders who attended the meeting didn't utter a word when the demand was put forward in Srinagar but in Jammu they reacted sharply and opposed the demand.
Just two days ago the Defence Minister Nirmala Sita Raman rejected the ceasefire offer and said that operations against the terrorists would continue.
Sources told Early Times that soon after the Defence Minister turned down truce proposal, the PDP started building pressure over BJP to agree to the proposal. "Speculations were rife that the PDP had conveyed to Centre that if it rejects ceasefire proposal it would pull out from the government in Jammu and Kashmir," they said, adding, "It looks like that Centre has taken the threat seriously and people at the helm have gone out of way to appease the PDP."
An analyst said, "Centre by not paying any heed towards the concerns of the BJP leaders in Jammu and Kashmir has proved that state unit has no say and they are just second fiddles. The coalition in Jammu and Kashmir is about PDP only and BJP is the junior coalition partner."
A defence analyst said, "It's surprising that Centre has asked the security forces to stop the operations against the terrorists. This would allow them to regroup and strike at their will. This decision is bound to backfire."
He said, "During the past few months security forces have been successful in wiping out top terrorist leaders and terrorists have been on the run. Halting anti-terror operations at this point of time would allow terror groups to intensify attacks on the security forces and make their network strong."
He said, "To announce ceasefire is purely a political decision aimed at keeping coalition in J&K intact."
It may be recalled that chief spokesman of the PDP Rafi Ahmed Mir on Tuesday had issued a hard hitting statement. He had accused New Delhi of having a "myopic" approach vis-à-vis Kashmir. "Stiching an alliance with the BJP was not for power but to heal people. New Delhi should follow the essence of Agenda of Alliance, which speaks about reconciliation in letter and spirit. If it fails to implement AoA it would be darkest hour for democracy and would prove that New Delhi has a myopic approach vis-à-vis Kashmir," Mir had said.
A politician wishing not to be named said, "PDP is trying to dictate terms to Centre and unfortunately leaders in New Delhi are dancing to its tunes."
