Centre in no mood to relent, Kashmir centric parties feel the heat
'Follow nationalist agenda or join separatist camp'

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 13: Kashmir centric parties are feeling the heat as there is every possibility about the President's rule in Jammu and Kashmir being extended beyond 20 June, 2019.
As reported earlier by this newspaper the Assembly elections in the state are likely to be deferred till November this year due to forthcoming tourist season, Amarnath Yatra, academic calendar and migration of nomads to the upper reaches.
An insider revealed that Kashmir centric parties may not find it easy to get their way. "Centre's policy vis-à-vis Kashmir is clear that Kashmir centric parties have to choose between nationalism and separatism. These parties cannot sail in two boats."
He said, "The new Kashmir policy has been framed and it won't change even if there is change of guard in the Centre. If Kashmiri politicians want to be in power again they would have to ensure that they don't cross the line. They bashing New Delhi and praising Pakistan won't work."
An analyst said, "Many people across the country are of the opinion that Kashmir centric parties have done more damage than the separatists. Mainstream politicians in Kashmir were nurtured by the Centre and were provided all the facilities and incentives during the past thirty years. Despite enjoying all the privileges most of the leaders of the traditional parties in Kashmir speak in the language of Pakistan and seem least bothered about the national interests."
He said that it appears Kashmir centric politicians are aware about the fact that coming months are not going to be easy for them as the Government of India has taken the final decision to wipe out the terrorists and their supporters in the Valley. "Kashmiri politicians stand cornered as they have realized that they cannot blackmail the Centre anymore," the analyst added.
A Kashmir watcher said that the Kashmir centric politicians will have to fight the forthcoming elections on the nationalist agenda and not one the agenda set by the separatists and the Pakistan stooges, who used to dictate terms to mainstream leaders in Kashmir. "The unfortunate part is that these leaders used to leave no stone unturned to appease the Pakistani agents in the Valley and used to openly seek their support to win the elections," he added.
A politician said that assembly elections getting delayed are a lesson for National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party as they stayed away from the Panchayat polls and ignored the repeated appeals by the Centre. "See how time changes, last year everyone urged NC and PDP to reconsider their decisions to stay away from Panchayat and Urban Local Bodies elections but they remained adamant. Today both the parties are literally begging for Assembly elections but no one is ready to listen to them," he added.
