Early Times Report
srinagar, Sept 14: With top leaders under detentions, the lower rung politicians and workers too have deserted the party offices in Kashmir.
Top leadership of the National Conference, Peoples Democratic Party, Peoples Conference, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement, are either under house arrest or under detention.
At the same time, the party workers too give a miss to the party offices in Srinagar.
Taken for instance, the office of Peoples Democratic Party wears a deserted look these days. Only few security personnel are there guarding the party office.
"No one has visited the office since August 5. All party workers are reluctant to come here because of prevailing situation," a party worker said, wishing not to be quoted by name.
The party's president Mehbooba Mufti, is detained at a government hut in Cheshmashahi
Just few steps away in Polo View where Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) headquarter is situated, the scenes are no different at National Conference headquarters.
At Nawai-Subeh, the National Conference office, all the office doors have been locked while two forces keeping in two bunkers disallow anyone to enter the party headquarter.
The party's president Farooq Abdullah is detained in his house while vice president Omar Abdullah is detained at Hari Nawas nearly a kilometer away from his residence. Rest of the leaders of the party are detained at Centaur hotel in Srinagar on the banks of Dal Lake.
As per the security officials guarding the party headquarters, only Member of Parliament Mohammad Akbar Lone and Retired Justice Hasnain Masoodi visited the party headquarter twice in last over a month without entering the offices.
A worker near the office said that all the party members are currently detained. He said the workers and party supporters mainly visit to the Centaur Hotel on banks of Dal Lake where the party leaders are kept under detention.
The worker said that few of the party supporters had tried to visit to Mufti but were disallowed by the security forces.
"No political activity is taking place currently. The leaders have been detained and workers can't do anything of their own," he said.
None of the workers or officials has visited the Congress office in Srinagar since August 5 when Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre revoked Article 370, 35A, and detained political leaders in Kashmir.
Like headquarters of other political parties, the otherwise busy offices of these political parties too are deserted in absence of leaders as well the workers.
