PDP fails to woo its disgruntled leaders back into fold
Clouded over by hardships!

Early Times Report

Jammu, June 23: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reportedly failed to extend an olive branch to its former rebel leaders as attempts to woo them back have miserably failed.
There were attempts being made by the senior PDP leadership to get the disgruntled leaders who had left the party in the past, back into the fold. Top priority amongst them was one of the founding PDP members and a former member of parliament. As confabulations were held to lure back into the herd, the rebel leader in question has in outright manner told the party that has no plans for Ghar Wapsi.
As per the reports, there were also attempts being made to get a former MLA and a renowned businessman back into the party. However, he too has trashed any such offer.
Reports had informed in the last month that PDP has already begun dispatching its emissaries to the rebel leader who once defeated NC Patriarch Dr Farooq Abdullah in parliament polls and secured massive victory for the PDP. The party was, as per the sources, busy confabulating how to woo back the leader into the fold and accord him an important responsibility within the party.
Workers on ground in particular had asked the PDP leadership to get the rebel leader back into the fold so that a strong message is sent out that party is capable to stand on its feet again no matter the rout it had to witness during the recently concluded parliament polls in the state.
Also, if reports are to be believed, the rebel leader in question who has been amongst the founding members of the PDP also isn't contended in the Congress- the party he joined to keep the BJP at bay.
However, the leader had trashed the possibilities of his Ghar Wapsi earlier this year as well. He had even ridiculed Mehbooba over the reasons she has been "dishing out" for joining the BJP. He accused the PDP president of contradicting her own self. "She (Mehbooba) is contradicting her own self when today she says she was coerced to join the BJP by her own party men. You must recall the statements she gave in Delhi as well as in Srinagar when she formed the government with the BJP in April 2016,"he was quoted by reports as having said. He had cited party's decision to form coalition government with "communal" BJP as one of the prime reasons of quitting it. Other reasons given by him while bidding adieui included the elevation of some PDP leaders within the party ranks. He even termed the PDP at that time a hub of political novices, paratroopers and thieves of the funeral cloth.
Now, when elections could any time be held in the state, there seems to be no end to the problems being confronted by the PDP. The party, as per the reports, is fighting hard for its survival and a satisfactory performance during the forth coming state elections alone could save it from plunging into oblivion.
