Rebels giving sleepless nights to PDP
Ansari says 14 MLAs ready to leave party, Mehbooba mum
7/12/2018 11:57:41 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, July 12: Former minister in the PDP-BJP coalition and now a PDP rebel, Imran Ansari has dropped a bombshell again by claiming that as many as 14 MLAs are about to leave the PDP soon and that the new front is in the offing.
The revelation has come a day after several PDP MLAs met former Chief Minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti at her residence in Srinagar. The meeting of even those MLAs about whom the party was sceptic that they may join the rebel camp, came as a surprise for the party and it regained the confidence of being intact and alive even during the present tumultuous times.
However, not much time had passed since the euphoria had dominated the PDP leadership, that Ansari, the rebel MLA and Shia leader made the startling revelation on Thursday.
According to him, those who met Mehbooba aren't with her in any way and that there are many who are about to join the rebel group., Ansari named those who are all set to bid adieu to the PDP and join the rebel group.
Such a statement has caused jittery within the PDP and there are discussions going on over what really is happening under its nose that too with such a rampant pace.
Ansari in a statement on Thursday said that he was not invited by the party to meet Mehbooba. "I did not receive any invitation. Let them take action whatever they want," Ansari said in the statement. He said that he has not decided whether to join any other party if he is sacked from the PDP.
Ansari, a former IT and Higher Education Minister, said: "PDP and the government had of late been reduced to a family opera where the brothers, the uncles, the aunties and other relatives would play the protagonist, and to continue with such a party was not only useless but a humiliation too."
Meanwhile, names of several legislators who could desert the PDP at this crucial juncture and join the opposite camp are making rounds within the power corridors.
"It is indeed a very peculiar situation that has emerged after June 19. We know that it is going to be a very tough phase for the party, but there are also people who are striving to keep the camp united and not to allow any wedge between the leadership at any cost," says a PDP functionary, adding that the situation would get clear by the end of this month and the statement spree against each other would stop immediately thereafter.
Pertinent to mention here that six PDP legislators-Imran Ansari, Abid Ansari, Abbas Wani, Yasir Reshi, Abdul Majeed Padroo and Javaid Beigh-have criticized the PDP leadership.
However, few among them met Mehbooba since her return from New Delhi to resolve the differences.
The PDP Thursday said that it has removed Yasir Reshi as the party's district president for Bandipora, cracking the whip on leaders who had publicly criticised Mehbooba.
In a statement, the PDP said Baramulla district president Irshad Ahmad Kar will look after the party affairs of Bandipora district for the time being.
