Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Jan 20: National Conference is all set to deny mandate to two of its senior members in the next assembly elections. Instead the party is going to add yet another dimension to the family politics that has assumed centre stage in the state especially Kashmir valley.
Sources told Early Times that the mandate is being denied to a leader of NC who played a pivotal role in keeping the party alive while all the other leaders left Kashmir when militancy at its peak in the decade of 90s. The NC leader is a veteran and has contested elections on many occasions.
In the decade of 90s when the Abdullahs had left the valley and very few NC leaders or workers were present in the valley, this NC leader carried on the agenda of the party while risking his life. He along with handful of party workers and activists used to hold closed door meetings and the same person is being denied mandate this time around.
"It is no less than a shock that the party is denying mandate to the NC leader who has won the assembly election from the Hazratbal constituency in the past. In his place the mandate is going to be given to the son of a legislator who is holding an important position in the party," said sources.
Sources said that NC is also in no mood to give mandate to its additional general secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal. Dr. Kamal has lost the constituency in Kashmir since he is no more the NC candidate from the Gulmarg constituency which he represented for some time. He is all set to lose mandate from Gulmarg to a former bureaucrat turned politician.
In the last assembly election the Hazratbal constituency was represented by Asiya Naqash of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) while as Gulmarg was represented by Mohammad Abbas Wani also of PDP. Since then Abbas has left the PDP while as there is virtually no clue of Asiya who happens to be sister in law of former PDP founder member Tariq Hameed Karra.
It would be in place to mention here that the person who is all set to get the mandate from Hazratbal constituency has been visiting some of the areas of the constituency over the past few days. He has been carrying out these visits in order to lure the voters and ensure that the constituency falls in the lap of NC and that too at the cost of PDP. "The young politician in question was the Mayor of Srinagar for some time and has been President of Youth National Conference in the past as well. He has been holding rallies of the party against the previous coalition government in the state and has developed bonhomie with the NC Vice President Omar Abdullah in the recent past," said sources.
