'PDP is a sinking boat, most MLAs have deserted it'
Why Mehbooba didn't move court against assembly dissolution

Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 28: As the PDP chief has revealed that her party wouldn't move court against the dissolution of the assembly, the decision has raised several eyebrows over whether the flock at the PDP is intact in real terms.
PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on November 26 ruled out approaching the court against Governor Satya Pal Malik's decision to dissolve the state assembly.
The assembly was abruptly dissolved on November 21, hours after the PDP staked claim to form a government with the backing of rival National Conference and the Congress, followed by another bid from the two-member People's Conference which claimed the support of the BJP and 18 leaders from other parties.
Mufti in a tweet on November 26 said, "Some sincere suggestions from well wishers for me to go to court against governor's dissolution of assembly. PDP, NC, INC had come together to safeguard state interests. It is my considered opinion that we must go to people's court which is superior to any other forum."
The Governor had justified the decision, saying it was necessary to stop the use of money and horse-trading in government formation. The state was put under Governor's Rule on June 19 after the BJP withdrew from the coalition government with the PDP, but the Governor decided to keep the assembly in suspended animation.
However, the decision of not to move the court by the PDP has come as a shock for many political groups and even within some PDP members who smell that the party leadership is perhaps aware of the fact it hasn't the number it claimed to represent in the state's legislative assembly.
"Who knows who is with the party and who is not. Most of the MLAs are tight lipped and this could have signalled the party's leadership that all its heard is not together and could drift away soon the party moves the court, embarrassing it before world. There couldn't be any other reason behind the PDP's decision of not moving the court," says an NC functionary.
Pertinently, there are also reports that galore within the power corridors that as the Governor's rule remains in vogue for the past six months in the state, there are chances that Jammu and Kashmir may come directly under President's rule.
BJP toppled the government in the state and took away support from its coalition partner PDP on June 19 when leaders of the former congregated at New Delhi and announced withdrawal of support in a press conference. State of Jammu and Kashmir came under Governor's rule the next day- June 20, this year. Since then, speculations were rife that various political groups are holding insidious talks with the BJP to form the government. Amongst them was the rebel group of the PDP led by Imran Ansari and his uncle Abid Ansari. There were also couple of MLCs of the party who publicly announced their support to the rebel group.
Imran Ansari had time and again claimed that there are chances of the BJP and his rebel group forming the government once again in the state and that he has the support of at least 23 PDP legislators. The total strength of the PDP in the lower house of the state is 28.
