When opposition, NC, PDP speak same language
Revolt in Mufti party

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Aug 9: PDP president and former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti has yet again warned the Centre that any move on its part to cause a split in the PDP or break the PDP would be fraught with dangerous consequences. Earlier, she had warned that the Centre's attempt at break her party would only "create more Syed Salahuddins and Yasin Maliks". At least 7 PDP lawmakers, including MLAs and MLCs, have openly revolted against Mehbooba Mufti and accused her of conducting herself as dynastic rulers conduct themselves. One of the MLAs, who was a minister in her Cabinet and a prominent Shia leader, has even gone to the extent of terming Mehbooba Mufti as "a white collar killer".
The out-of-power PDP president Mehbooba Mufti has been speaking the same language the NC leaders would speak. And the man from the NC who would speak for the party would be none other than Mustafa Kamal, Farooq Abdullah's younger brother and party's general secretary. He repeatedly accused the agencies of seeking to cause a split in the NC. "New Delhi had over the years done many things to check the growth of NC and accused it of creating ways to eliminate the party. New Delhi created PDP not to check our political growth but to eliminate us. The biggest hurdle for New Delhi to merge Jammu and Kashmir with the Indian union is NC. However, we understand New Delhi's politics of deceit against us," Mustafa Kamal would say day in and day out. He would even go to the extent of leveling serious charge that the "target killings that had happened after the Afzal Guru incident were an indication that there was a conspiracy against NC". "They (the Centre and the agencies) are hatching plans against us 24x7. They don't want to see a stable government and make people resent our rule. They are doing these things indirectly as Congress is also a part of the government," he would also say again and again. The upshot of the NC would always be: "Various security agencies, mainstream political parties and separatists are destabilizing the government and 'eliminating' the ruling regional party and security agencies, separatists and our political opponent PDP can party with the devil to destabilize NC". One thing appears absolutely clear: PDP chief has no confidence in her own party lawmakers and she has not been able to keep her flock together. The language the 7 PDP lawmakers have used against her leadership that the possibility of the rebels changing their stand on the party leadership is too remote and this notwithstanding the fact that Mehbooba Mufti is restructuring her party and keeping her relatives, including Madni, away.
