Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 23: After witnessing the worst ever defeat since its formation, Peoples Democratic Party is all set to go for a major overhaul within its ranks and remove most of the party veterans from positions of general secretaries and vice president.
As BJP swept the polls across India, in Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference bagged all three parliamentary constituencies in Kashmir valley while BJP won rest of three seats in Jammu and Ladakh.
PDP President Mehbooba conceded defeat by congratulating NC and maintaining that the people of the state have every right to be angry with her and that she accepts the verdict with humility. "I've been fortunate to get the love & affection of my people. They have every right to express their anger for my failings. Accept their verdict with humility. Congratulations to winning candidates from NC. I'm grateful to my party workers & colleagues,"Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.
Now with results out, there are reports that the PDP is going to go for an overhaul in the party and accord vital posts to new faces. As per the reports, the party at first is going to replace the General Secretaries and then new people will be accorded with the responsibility of vice Presidents. "The overhaul is very important for the party. The decision to replace new faces with the older ones was decided earlier and it will be translated into action soon," says a party member privy to the development.
He added that the party president is not happy with the performance of several of her colleagues who according to her didn't work with dedication to make party's contesting candidates victorious during the recently held Lok Sabha polls.
Last year when the BJP pulled the rug from under the PDP and toppled the government, several PDP leaders accused Mehbooba of giving preferential treatment to few blue eyed people like her uncle Sartaj Madni, Naeem Akhtar, Peerzada Mansoor Hussain and several others.
As the rebellion within the party was only getting murkier, there was an overall in July, 2018 seen in the party.
Madni voluntarily submitted his resignation from the Vice President's post. Later on, all PDP office bearers including the general secretary and treasurers submitted their resignation to party president Mehbooba Mufti.
Later on, new general secretaries and a vice President. Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura was accorded with the task to discharge his duties as party's general secretary while as veteran PDP leader Abdul Rahman Veeri was appointed as new Vice President of the party.
Now, almost a year later, there are chances that the PDP Chief may bring back the old faces again and evolve a strategy to counter rival national conference during the forthcoming assembly elections which are likely to be conducted in the month of November. "Parliament and assembly polls are entirely different. We have got much time to bounce back and give a tough fight to national conference. For that, we need to streamline our strategies and overhaul within the party is inevitable for it," says a party source.
