Politicians who bagged just 10 percent vote share to become rulers stand exposed
Even after 77 days no one comes out to seek release of Kashmir-centric leaders

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 21: Kashmir-centric leaders who used to claim that they are the representatives of people have been under detention for more than past 77 days. Interestingly, no one except a few relatives of NC president Dr Farooq Abdullah have come out on the streets to seek their release.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "The so called representatives don't seem to enjoy any public support despite running the affairs of Jammu & Kashmir for the past 70 years. It is strange the former MLAs and the incumbent MP from Srinagar Dr Farooq Abdullah had no one to fall back upon."
It is in place to mention here that even the NC, Congress and PDP leaders lodged at posh Centaur Hotel on the banks of Dal Lake in Srinagar have failed to make any impact as no have come out to seek their release.
The analyst said, "During the past thirty years Kashmir-centric politicians have thrived on boycott politics. They managed to get 5 to 10 percent votes and claimed that they have been elected by the people but all their claims have been punctured during the past 77 days."
He said that these leaders during all these years have just fed lies to the common people and New Delhi as well. "These leaders used to pretend that they are the ones who can manage Jammu & Kashmir. Post August 5, 2019 they have lost their locus standi and people not reacting to their detention has proved that politicians in Kashmir were nothing more than the good actors, who used to stage managed their political shows just to hoodwink the leaders sitting in the national capital," the analyst added.
An observer said, "It seems people in the Valley are happy about Kashmir-centric leaders being shown their right place. J&K's reorganization has driven home a point that Kashmir-centric leaders enjoyed no public support and they had been ruling J&K due to the blessings of New Delhi."
"Former Chief Ministers of J&K Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah who ruled J&K due to their family background may not find it easy to play politics over sensitive issues in the newly carved Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir. When they are released they will have to prove that they enjoy some public support as their surnames won't help them anymore," the observer added.
A Kashmir watcher said, "No one coming out to seek release of mainstream politicians is a huge embarrassment for Abdullahs and Mehbooba Mufti. Their survival in the new era seems very difficult."
