Mehbooba says pre-poll alliance with any political party open
Closest opens with loads of surprises

Jammu, Mar 14: A major political development in Jammu and Kashmir's political landscape is in the offing as PDP President Mehbooba Mufti hints that her party has kept the option of pre-poll alliance with other political groups open.
In a detailed interview with New Delhi based media house, Mehbooba said that she wouldn't reject the possibility of the pre-poll alliance between her and other political party of the state. "Is there any chance for pre poll alliance?," asked the interviewer to PDP President. "We have not taken any such decisions so far. We have not discussed it so far," replied She. Meanwhile, speculations are rife that the PDP may have a pre-poll alliance with the Congress during the coming Lok Sabha elections as both the parties are yet to declare their candidates for all six parliament seats of the state. "This can be an option for greater common good. Why not? We have been the allies in the past and have run the government jointly. This is going to be a major breakthrough in the political spectrum of Jammu and Kashmir," says one Congress leader.
One of the PDP leaders divulged that not only the Congress but national conference too can join the chorus and form a united front against the BJP.
Pertinently, soon after the fragmented mandate of the 2014 election in which no party in the state had enough numbers to form the government of its own, NC's vice president and former chief minister made an open offer to the PDP in a live tv interview, offering it an unconditional support to form the government and keep BJP at bay. Omar at that time substantiated his offer by the political development in Bihar in which Nitesh Kumar and Lalu Yadav had joined hands against the BJP. "If Nitesh and Lalu can do it in Bihar, we can't we do it in Kashmir," Omar had said in the interview.
However, at that time, the PDP rejected the offer, stating that the party got votes to keep NC away from power and joining hands with it would be tantamount to treason with its voters and supporters.
As per sources, privy to this development, various PDP leaders have suggested to the party high command that it is a high time for the party to open bak channel talks with the national conference and form a united front against the BJP and assault on Article 35-A the case pertaining to which is pending at present at country's top court. It is being informed that several leaders of both the parties are of the opinion that rivalry should be kept aside and a united front is needed to secure the vote base and make the mainstream camp once again relevant in state's political landscape. It is also being suggested by some PDP and NC leaders that if a consensus is evolved for the safeguard of Article 35-A and protection of state's special status is made as a poll plank, the parties could gain a maximum ground in the land locked Kashmir valley with expectations that people too would come out to cast their franchise in such a case.
