Dissidence brewing in rank, file of NC
Party's efforts to stich alliance with Congress yield no results

Early Times Report
Jammu, Mar 21: A fresh dissidence and anger has hit rank and file of largest and oldest regional political party of Jammu and Kashmir National Conference following decision by party president Dr Farooq Abdullah to forge an alliance with Congress party in coming Lok sabha polls.
By agreeing to tie up with Congress on 3 seats and conceding to major demands of Congress, common workers of National Conference are dejected, disappointed and shocked. They feel that Congress has mastered NC by agreeing to support it in only one seat while managing to garner NCs support in two seats of Jammu and Udhampur. Notably, Congress has a very narrow base in Srinagar and so it has nothing much to lose in this alliance drama.
Sources disclosed that majority of NC workers from Jammu as well as Kashmir region are not happy over party top brass's decision to ally with Congress on three seats. They say that it would have been better for the party to contest on all six seats as NC is currently in much better postion, not only in Kashmir valley but in some pockets in the Jammu region.
"We have virtually surrendered our political interests before Congress. They have played master stroke by compelling us to support them in two seat of Jammu while managing to field their candidates in rest of three seats including two crucial seats of Kashmir valley', says one of the NC leader from Kashmir valley on condition of anonymity .
"Graph of PDP is totally down. There is no other alternative for people of valley other than NC as Congress as well as other political parties have very less presence in Kashmir valley and they are rather confined to some pockets only. We could have fetched a strong deal with congress by compelling them to support our candidate's in all three seats of the Kashmir valley at least, but this has not happened, leading to huge disappointed for all of us", said another NC leaders from the Kashmir valley.
On the other hand, Congress leaders and its workers are quite upbeat, they say that party leaders especially Ghulam Nabi Azad managed to fetch a good deal with NC over seat sharing. They also claimed that Congress can manage a good show in atleast four seats of lok sabha now and this could lead to a good impact on party prospects in upcoming Assembly polls in the state.
