Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 25: The Government has reportedly opened communication channel with National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah and PDP President Mehbooba Mufti.
According to media report they have been told that Government is ready to release them but they should not issue any provocative statement. It is in place to mention here that the Police has released Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq soon after he was arrested, after he assured the authorities that he would not issue any provocative statement. Since the day Mirwaiz has been released, he has maintained silence and has not issued a single statement.
An analyst while taking to Early Times said, "The Jammu and Kashmir administration seems to have set boll rolling to normalise the situation in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, and roping in the political leaders could be the first step."
He said, "Both Omar and Mehbooba have suffered a huge setback due to Centre reorganising Jammu and Kashmir, as they have been left with nothing to sell, even if they win the elections, they would not have absolute power, as the Lt. Governor will be the defecto head of the J&K Union Territory."
An Observer said, "Regional parties including National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party have lost their relevance, as these parties have been left with limited role, major decision about Union Territory of J&K will be taken by the New Delhi."
He said that Kashmir centric parties during the past 70 years use to sell rhetoric to the people and thrived in conflict. "These parties have created a notion that they only can manage J&K, and if Centre thrive to dislodge them it would prove disastrous, but their dreams get scattered", the Observer added.
A Kashmir watcher said that there is every possibility about the political leaders being released in coming days, but how they will fit themselves in the new screen of things remain to be seen. The Kashmir watcher while referring Panchayat Elections, which held in J&K last year, said both PDP and NC committed a big mistake by not contesting these polls. "Have these parties shown some flexibility at the that point of time, may be things in J&K would have been different today", he said, "These leaders of regional parties in J&K will have to look for new slogan and new narratives to keep themself relevant, as the fast changing political landscape is not going help their cause.

Soures said that New Delhi si hopeful of striking 'appease deal' with ten regional parties in Kashmir so that life gets back to normal at an earliest.
Sources said that a deal with National Conference,may take place even before the PDP opposed to the same as per the sources New Delhi is interesting in releasing the main stream leaders provide they give an undertaking they would not incite for protests.
