Political progress more important than mere polls: Mehbooba
PDP may not contest elections

Early Times Report
jammu, Nov 15: The PDP seems to have given out a notion in the public domain that the party is not ready to contest the upcoming assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir, stating that state's political solution is more important than contesting polls.
A detailed statement that was issued by the PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday carried a deep message inside and that was about party's stand on coming elections.
The PDP chief has said that while it was legitimate for the political parties like PDP to seek peoples' trust and their representation but it is not just for seeking power. She said that the ultimate aim in Jammu and Kashmir has to be the permanent resolution of our problems which have cost the state very dearly for the last seven decades.
She said that mere change of governments or any attempt at disrupting the established political order will only push the state and the country into a deeper mess.
It seems that the party is trying to send the feelers about its stand on polls and that it wants to keep the people and the rival political groups guessing over what decision it will take when it comes to contesting the polls.
If the party remains out of the fray during the elections, it is going to be a major development in the state which already is reeling under eta political crises and is witnessing its worst ever political logjam.
The statement on Wednesday that has come from none other than the former chief minister and PDP president herself is an indication that something serous s going to happen with the party and that she will reveal her cards at an appropriate time.
Most of Mehbooba's colleagues were also surprised over such revealing para in the detailed statement. "The handout had a different headline and it was about the state's special status and then it talked about the importance of talks in the state. It was one para that raised the eye brows and has set the alarm bells ringing. That para talks about polls and belittling their importance saying that the party is going to take a stand on it very soon," says a party functionary wishing not to be named.
Pertinently, there are already reports making rounds that the the Government of India would plan to have parliament and assembly polls in Jammu and Kashmir together with Panchayat and Urban Local Bodies elections acting as a drill for the greater action. The possibilities of such a novel measure are being substantiated by the fact that parliament polls are just six months away, slated to be held in April next year. It is unlikely that if the government wants to hold the assembly elections soon, it would risk going for two elections at two different times that too in a same year.
It is to be seen what remains in PDP's kitty and whether the party would jump into the fray or watch the scenes from the shor
