Kashmir centric politicians fall in line after becoming irrelevant
Start campaigning for LS polls as tantrums don't work

Jammu, Mar 17: Kashmir centric politicians, who till the recent past, used to dictate terms to Centre and talk about holding parleys with Pakistan have realized that taking part in the elections is the only way to keep themselves relevant and if they miss the bus they would cease to exist.
"After raising hue and cry about clubbing assembly polls with the Lok Sabha elections, the Kashmir centric politicians have realized that no one is ready to listen to them and they have to fall in the line if they want to reach the parliament or the assembly," said an analyst.
He said that at present Kashmir centric parties are grappling with number of issues like internal discord and emergence of new faces on the political arena of the Valley.
A Kashmir watcher said that National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party have sounded the poll bugles and leaders of both the parties have started campaigning for the parliamentary elections. "These are the same parties which few months ago refused to take part in the urban local bodies and panchayat elections in the state. In fact everyone, including the union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, requested them to come forward and take part in the ULB and panchayat polls but they did not pay any heed," the Kashmir watcher added.
A politician said that during all these years Kashmir centric politicians have been selling dreams to the people and have been raking up such issues, which don't fall in their domain. "On the other hand they have been trying to tell the people sitting in New Delhi that they are the only ones who can govern Kashmir and if they (Kashmir centric) politicians are dislodged there would be no one left to hold the national flag in the Valley," he added.
An expert said, "During the past thirty years whosoever has ruled Kashmir has projected it as a disturbed place. But that myth has been shattered as the Operation All Out launched by the security forces in the Valley has broken the back of the terrorists in Kashmir. The biggest mistake which former J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti committed was that she compelled New Delhi to announce a unilateral ceasefire last year. The terrorist spurned the offer and the biggest casualty of that truce was Shujaat Bukhari chief editor of Srinagar based daily Rising Kashmir. Bukhari was murdered along with his two personal security officers by the terrorists outside his office at Press Enclave in Srinagar last year when truce was on."
The expert said that Kashmir centric politicians stand exposed and if they really want to survive they should focus on the issues which fall in their domain rather than throwing tantrums and challenging the Centre's writ.
