Early Times Report
Jammu, Feb 7: National Conference on Thursday once again proved that the party is a torch bearer of dynasty politics, nepotism and partiality and the way it knows to make sons rise is unique and unmatchable.
The party already being questioned for making the third generation of Abdullah’s its patriarchs and giving no other person any chance to lead the party. However, learning little from its mistakes, the party continues to empty family rule in the state.
There are eight to nine senior leaders within the party whose sons have been accorded important positions no matter whether they deserve the same or not. On Thursday, one more name was added to the list and that was of Akbar Lone’s son.
Soon after the National Conference declared that it is going to field its senior leader and speaker Assembly Akbar Lone as a candidate for Lok Sabha polls, reports begun to galore that Akbar Lone’s son will fill the space left by his father in assembly constituency. Akbar Lone won the 2014 polls from Sonawari assembly of the state. As Lone is going to contest the parliament polls, he made party to appoint his son as its candidate for assembly elections.
It was reported that Advocate Hilal Akbar Lone will contest the assembly election from the Sonawari constituency .Lone has won the past three assembly elections from Sonawari constituency in Bandipora. In 2009, he was elected as speaker of the state assembly and held the position for almost four years.
Meanwhile, apart from Lone, party general secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar is fielding his son and former Srinagar Municipal Corporation Mayor Salman Sagar as the party’s candidate from Hazaratbal assembly segment. Another party leader Mubarak Gul is busy promoting his son Yunis Mubarak as party’s candidate for the upcoming assembly polls.
Earlier, in the year 2013, NC had given key posts in party’s youth wing to the sons of the loyalists of National Conference.

Salman Sagar was made YNC's provincial president, Similarly, Younis Mubarak was made YNC's vice-president, NC stalwart Muhammad Sayeed Akhoon's son Saleem Akhoon was been appointed as the treasurer of the party.

Most leaders, including former chief minister Omar Abdullah, either are second or third generation leaders from various political clans associated with the NC. “The party is becoming the worst example of dynasty politics in the state. There are no chances for senior workers or functionaries to make it to the top if they aren’t sons of any senior NC leader,” said a party functionary.

He added that he is considering to leave the party because it looks like its leaders are believing in Bollywood’s style of functioning with stars promoting star kids and making entry of an outsider almost impossible.
