PDP on its last legs
Senior party leaders waiting for results to say good-bye
5/3/2019 11:42:46 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, May 3: Much before results of the Parliamentary elections, whisper campaign has already started in the corridors of power that PDP is going to be disintergrated after the elections. It is not the question of disintegration but political observers feel that existence of PDP will be in danger after Lok Sabha elections because majority of the senior party leaders have already sitting silently during the campaign.
Credible sources said that senior PDP leaders, who are still with Mehbooba Mufti, are awaiting for results of Lok Sabha polls to say 'good-bye' to the party which has become a family affairs of a family and group of communal syphonants have hijacked the party formed by statesman and secular leader Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
PDP president Mehbooba Mufti is fighting elections to save existence of her party. The high-profile elections are crucial for the political future of the PDP led by Mehbooba.
Since the formation of the party in 1999, four districts of south Kashmir became party's bastion with its candidates winning 12 seats in 2008 and 11 in 2014 there. Now, the PDP is fighting for survival and Mehbooba's candidature from the Anantnag Lok Sabha seat is the party's hope of victory, which could give a boost to the otherwise demoralised cadres of the PDP.
In 2014, Mehbooba had won the Anantnag Lok Sabha seat by defeating NC candidate Mehboob Beg by more than 65,000 votes. Later in the assembly elections, the polling in south Kashmir was about 39% and the PDP got the highest vote share in south Kashmir. When Mehbooba became J&K chief minister in 2016 after her father's demise, she got elected from her father's assembly seat and vacated her Lok Sabha seat with an intention to field her younger brother Tasaduq Mufti from there.
