Tariq Karra had beforehand 'intuitions' of PDP-BJP breakup
Antaryaami!

Early Times Report

Jammu, June 22: Did senior politician Tariq Hameed Karra who during 2016 unrest resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party and the chair of Member Parliament to protest the "rights abuse" in Kashmir, have "beforehand intuitions" that the Bharatiya Janta Party would pull back from the alliance with PDP?
This question is doing the rounds in political circles in Kashmir as on the day when BJP announced pull out from the alliance, Karra had posted an unusual post.
On the morning of June 19, at around 8:00 AM, some eight hours before the formal announcement of the breakup, Karra posted on social media that he had cautioned PDP President Mehbooba Mufti about the possible fallouts of alliance with the BJP. "I had very openly cautioned Mehbooba Ji that what RSS could not achieve in sixty years, they have been able to achieve within six months in our State, especially in Kashmir Valley. I cautioned her about opening of offices by BJP and likes in the valley and even the Shakhas by RSS in the fringe areas of the valley. But my word of caution was responded by her saying that India is a free country and nobody can be stopped by anybody from opening their offices anywhere," Karra had posted.
Many had been guessing why Karra, who is presently a Congress leader, made such a post when, there were no issues between the PDP and BJP at that point of time. The same day, however, by 3:00 PM, the news of pull out was out.
The next morning, Karra made another curious post. "I had been warning about this(PDP-BJP) alliance. I was even mocked. Whatever was agreed to be done was never done. I had always opposed the idea of the party teaming up with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form an alliance after a fractured mandate in 2015 assembly polls. It was an unnatural alliance and the PDP lost its character as it did exactly what it opposed in the past (when it was in opposition)." "People of Jammu and Kashmir will always remember PDP as a collaborator for fascist RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh)-governed BJP, But as fate would have it, Mehbooba Mufti's indulgence has come to a sudden end. Abandoned, Mehbooba Mufti and her party have been taken by surprise(sic)," the post added. Sources said Karra had learnt from some quarters that PDP-BJP alliance would break.
Before leaving PDP, Karra had taken dig at his then party colleagues including Haseeb Drabu, Altaf Bukhari and Naeem Akhter accusing the trio of ruining the PDP.
Despite repeated attempts Karra couldn't be contacted for comments.
