Modi Govt rejects Kashmiri politics of blackmail, declared that civic polls will be held
It's great development

Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 12: No one had ever imagined that New Delhi will not kneel to accommodate Kashmiri leaders' unreasonable, divisive and undemocratic demands, but it has happened, thus showing the undemocratic forces in the Valley their rightful place. The Narendra Modi Government on Wednesday created a history of sorts by rejecting the politics of blackmail indulged in by NC president Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and declared that elections to panchayats and Urban Local Bodies will be held as per schedule.
The Government of India took such a position for the first time in 71 years and sent to Kashmir a clear message that New Delhi will not listen to those in Kashmir who disrupt democratic processes directly and indirectly and that the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Ladakh, who occupy 89 per cent of the state's land area, will not be crushed just keep the Abdullahs and Muftis in a good humour.
There were reports that the Governor administration will today defer ULB polls taking into the consideration the objections being raised by Kashmiri leaders like Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehboba Mufti, as also their stand on the controversial Article 35-A that denies equal rights to women of the state and considers Hindu-Sikh refugees from Pakistan, Valmiki Samaj, Gurkhas and Bazigars living in Jammu since decades as foreigners unfit to exercise any citizenship right in Jammu & Kashmir. There were also reports that the Governor, Satya Pal Malik, and his advisors will today sit up to discuss the whole issue of civic polls and that the state government was "likely" to defer the announced elections. But nothing of this sort happened. But happened was to the contrary.
Chief Secretary to Jammu & Kashmir Government, B.V.R. Subramanyum, today set the record straight and declared the civic and panchayat elections won't be deferred. He was talking to media persons on the sidelines of an official function in Srinagar and he took this opportunity to clear the confusion created by earlier reports that the Governor's administration was considering deferment of municipal polls.
The stand which the Governor's administration took today must have rattled Kashmiri leaders, including Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti because they must have been entertaining a belief that their politics of blackmail would click as before. On the other hand, the Governor's administration stand would be welcomed in Jammu and Ladakh by one and all as are fed up with the Kashmiri leadership and the kind of politics they have been playing since 1947.
