Is Altaf Bukhari joining NC?

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Apr 20: Is former Finance Minister Altaf Bukhari in the Mehbooba Mufti joining the National Conference (NC)? If reports emanating from Kashmir are any indication, then the answer has to be in the affirmative.
His latest statement that "it was time to rise above the party system and vote for a strong candidate who can talk about Kashmir issue in the parliament of India" constitutes a clear indication that he has snapped all his ties with the Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP and that he is in search of some green pastures so that he remains relevant in Kashmir.
That he is all set to befriend Farooq Abdullah became clear on April 18 itself, when he publicly disclosed that he had voted for the NC candidate Farooq Abdullah. Farooq Abdullah was a candidate from the Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency. Bukhari publicly wooed Farooq Abdullah, saying that "he is a strong candidate among all the people who were in election fray for the Srinagar parliamentary seat" and that it would be only in the larger interest of Kashmir, if the NC president entered the Lok Sabha to represent and promote the Kashmir cause within the parliament and at the national capital, New Delhi.
"The attacks on the special identity of Jammu and Kashmir need to be defended and only a person like Farooq Abdullah can do that in the parliament.
I feel we need to send a strong leader to the parliament. We need to send those leaders to the parliament who can make a strong stand for Kashmir cause," Altaf Bukhari was quoted as saying.
He has not only commended Fatooq Abdullah, but also lambasted the Mehbooba Mufti government in which he himself was a minister. Acknowledging that the Mehbooba Mufti-led coalition government utterly failed to "respect the aspirations of the people", Bukhari said that the "youth who are on the streets pelting stones, it is always a responsibility of the government to make atmosphere conducive and restore normalcy which the previous government completely failed".
