Lok Sabha election results will decide NC, PDP's future

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 15: With just eight days left for the results of the Lok Sabha elections to be announced, political parties in Kashmir are keeping their fingers crossed.
National Conference leaders are claiming that their party would win all the three seats in the Valley, while Peoples Democratic Party, Peoples Conference and Congress are also making tall claims about their candidates being in a strong position.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that the results of the Lok Sabha elections are very important for the NC and PDP as both the parties had boycotted the Panchayat and Urban Local Bodies polls held last year. "Both these parties at that point of time had thought that if they stay away from these elections, the Government of India would defer these polls as these parties during all these years have created a notion that no political process can be a success without their participation," the analyst said, adding that the successful conduct of the polls at the grass root level has shattered the myth that NC and PDP are the only two parties in Kashmir on which the Centre can count upon.
A Kashmir watcher said that both these parties know it very well that results of the recently held Lok Sabha elections are very important for them as the outcome will decide who would form the new government in Jammu and Kashmir. "Despite polling percentage being low the results would indicate who would have an outside chance in the forthcoming Assembly elections," he added.
He said that both NC and PDP are not worried about the Jammu region as leaders of both the parties are aware about the fact that they don't have much support in this region. "National Conference and the PDP did not field any candidates for the two parliamentary seats in Jammu region as both the parties knew it very well that it won't make any difference. During the past few years both NC and PDP due to their anti-Jammu approach have even lost their dedicated grass root workers," the Kashmir watcher said.
Another analyst said that NC and PDP are facing severe crisis at present as both the parties are facing resentment within their party ranks. "Many PDP leaders have deserted the party and others are waiting for the results of the Lok Sabha elections. If the PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti loses Anantnag Parliamentary seat in south Kashmir the PDP would be left with only few people. On the other hand NC vice-president Omar Abdullah is also worried he knows that he won't be able to keep his flock together if the party fails to win all the three seats in the Valley," he added.
