PDP beats separatists in anti-poll rant
It can't go more ironic than this!

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 17: At a time when the political groups in Kashmir valley should have come forward and make the democratic process more vibrant, they are out to foil it with bizarre statements and rants.
One of the shocking statements came from the PDP on Monday when it opposed the conduction of Panchayat and ULB polls in the state while claiming that the decision to hold polls in the state is "reflection of central government's sheer arrogance."
The Panchayat and ULB polls are aimed to provide good governance to the people of the state at the grass root level and utilise crores of rupees of central funds that keep getting lapsed. However, trying to fish in the troubled waters, PDP is again out in the open opposing such a vital exercise that too without any reason.
Moreover, the party has even claimed that the polls will make the violence surge in the Valley and that government should have taken peace-building measures ahead of announcing the poll dates.
"This is clear cut politics and nothing else. The party otherwise knows that the polls are going to benefit no one but the common masses. Why it is opposing the election is because it wants to appease the separatists and want to show people that it is anti- New Delhi," says a functionary of a political group in Valley.
The statement that PDP issued on Monday was more ironic and shocking. "New Delhi has to understand what it will achieve by holding such polls when the situation merits pacification and reconciliation on ground. Further, what has acted as a spoilsport in the entire process was government's linking of polls with the hearing of 35-A. This is unnatural, bizarre and unacceptable," the PDP statement said.
"Why despite such a unanimous opposition by the political groups in the state for holding of polls has the government of India decided to thrust this exercise on the already perturbed people of the state? It is proving that something somewhere in the decision making has went terribly wrong which needs immediate rectification by the GOI," it said.
Furthermore, the party left no stone unturned to train guns against its former coalition partner BJP terming it an ostrich with head stuck in the sand. The party came down heavily on the minister in the PMO Jitendra Singh, accusing him of being unaware of the ground situation.
Such an action by the PDP has reflected that the party has decided to up the ante against the BJP and that it is in no mood to form any government with it as was being widely speculated during the past few months. "The PDP has realised that it has lost much of its vote base by remaining silent. It will now step up its campaign against the BJP and it will try hard to regain the ground that it had lost by joining hands with the BJP," says a political commentator, adding that the party is expected to strike the BJP harder as the elections approach nearer.
