Early Times Report
srinagar, Nov 30: Amid alleged cracks that have developed in the Peoples Democratic Party, a senior PDP leader nicknamed Birbal who was sidelined a few months ago is getting active again in the party affairs.
In the last few days, the said politician who was also a minister in the previous PDP led government has been seen active at the party functions as also its main office in Srinagar.
This week the leader not only led a protest rally held by the party but also has been issuing statements. Sources said he would formally get a key position in the working body of the party soon.
Sources said amid rebellion with the party the PDP leadership has reconciled with the leader and is likely to be given the charge of making press notes on "strategic issues."
Sources said the leader has drawn support of some of the party leader who think that it was in the interest of the party affairs to give him space in decision making.
A few months ago, after losing the government, the PDP President and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had sidelined this particular politician following his criticism from the party colleagues.
"Some of the senior leaders had been openly questioning his way of politics and had accused him of having ruined the party," the sources said.
Sources said the party high command had a "second thought" and decided to get him back to prominence. "See he has not been good for our politics but he is a loyalist and Madam at this particular needs loyalists," said a PDP leader on the condition of anonymity.
In the last two years, most of the party leaders who left PDP had been openly speaking against him.
From Tariq Karra to rebel Imran Ansari and his uncle Abid Ansari many of the senior leaders had been accusing this particular politician of having ruined the PDP.
Despite repeated attempt the said politician couldn't be contacted for comments.
