PDP, JKPM New Delhi's conspiracy against Kashmir, NC: Omar Abdullah

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Mar 18: NC vice-president Omar Abdullah has again attacked New Delhi. This time he accused it of hurting people of Kashmir, sabotaging the NC's autonomy demand and the NC itself by creating new political in the Kashmir Valley. What he said at Anantnag town on Sunday in this regard while addressing a party workers' convention could be described as a sign of his frustration and an announcement that the NC didn't want in Kashmir the rise of more political parties. It also suggested that the NC leadership believes in one-party domination not only in Kashmir but also in the state.
What did Omar Abdullah say about the creation of new political parties and about New Delhi? He accused New Delhi of "creating new political parties in Kashmir to 'suppress' the voice of the people" and questioned why such formations were not launched from either Jammu or Ladakh regions of Jammu and Kashmir.
"Contesting elections or floating your own political party is part of democracy and I don't have any issues with that. But why is it that these political parties are launched only in Kashmir; why not from Jammu or Ladakh? Doesn't it clearly indicate a ploy aimed at dividing us further?" Omar said on the day Shah Faesal, former bureaucrat, founded his own party, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM).
"It is a fact that conspiracies have been hatched for long to weaken our special status. While in Jammu and Ladakh, the (political) field is being left open for the Congress and the BJP, here (in Kashmir) there is always an attempt to divide the mandate," Omar Abdullah said, adding "ever since his party brought the autonomy resolution in the J&K assembly in 2000, attempts are on to 'suppress' the voice of the people".
Omar Abdullah didn't stop just here. He termed the creation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the immediate fallout of New Delhi's conspiracy against Kashmir and the NC. "The creation of the PDP served the same purpose," Omar Abdullah asserted without mincing words.
To further make his point, Omar Abdullah also invoked his grandfather and said Sheikh Abdullah had predicted that New Delhi would hatch conspiracies against Kashmir to "suppress" the voice of people by creating leaders in each Mohalla of Kashmir. "Just before his death, Sheikh Abdullah had predicted that New Delhi will create leaders in every nook and corner of Kashmir. Today, we are witnessing the same, with people from every nook and corner-from Shangus to Achabal to Anantnag to Pahalgam-all claiming to be leaders," he said.
What Omar Abdullah said should leave none in doubt that the NC hates the idea of others in Kashmir establishing their own political parties and that it wants restoration of pre-1999 position, when the NC used to be the only force in the Valley; it would rule or misrule the state unhindered.
It was in 1999 that Mufti Sayeed and Mehbooba Mufti formed the PDP and it was this PDP which broke the monopoly of the NC in 2002. In 1996, the NC had won 57 seats in the assembly, but in 2002, the NC could win only 28 with Mufti Mohammad Sayeed dislodging Farooq Abdullah and becoming J&K CM for the first time with the support of the Congress. The NC could not improve its strength in 2008 as well; it won an equal number of seats 28. However, it was in 2014 that the NC suffered the worst-ever defeat. It could win only 15 seats. The PDP's tally was 28 with Mufti Sayeed again becoming CM with the support of the BJP. Omar Abdullah's attack on New Delhi needs to be viewed in this context.
