BJP leaders ready to give up Hindu CM demand to grab power again

Early Times Report

Jammu, July 12: Bharatiya Janata Party leaders from Jammu and Kashmir are making desperate attempts to persuade the central leadership to form the government in the state.
The senior BJP leaders these days are camping in New Delhi to get a nod from the leadership to go ahead with engineering a split in Peoples Democratic Party so that rebels could form a splinter group and challenge the "hegemony" of the PDP leadership.
Sources told Early Times that the PDP leaders headed by Imran Ansari are in touch with the BJP leaders and have assured them that they would be able to cobble up the numbers to form the government in Jammu and Kashmir.
Former chief minister and PDP President Mehbooba Mufti is making all possible attempts to keep her party together. "She has even sidelined her family members and is assuring her legislators that they would be given important party positions to run the party affairs," said a source.
He said that Mehbooba has send invitations to all the PDP legislators to come and meet her but the rebels are adamant and are not coming forward.
On the other hand BJP leaders from Jammu have reportedly conveyed to the party high command that even if the Hindu chief minister is not installed the government should be formed. "These leaders are claiming that if the government is formed BJP would have an upper hand and can run the state on its terms," the source added.
An analyst said, "The BJP legislators are feeling restless since the day the party has lost the power. They want to come back at any cost but the central leadership is not that keen as the performance of the BJP ministers has been below par and have failed to live upto the expectations of the people."
He said that failure of the BJP leaders to highlight the issues of Jammu region and work for its development have pushed them away from the people and they have lost ground in their constituency. "The state BJP leaders made big compromises for the sake of power and allowed Mehbooba Mufti led government to dictate terms to them," the analyst added.
A politician said, "Had BJP leaders not gone into the appeasement mode and opposed the soft policy of the PDP towards the terrorists and the separatists from day one they would not have been in a mess today. They are paying for their misdeeds and their more loyal than the king approach."
