Dual face of NC, PDP comes to fore yet again; party MPs not ready to resign

srinagar, Dec 9: The old saying that politicians have dual face has been proved time and again by the leaders, activists and workers of different political groups. Two of the leading mainstream political parties of Jammu & Kashmir have set their own bench marks in this regard.
Leaders of National Conference (NC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) claimed that democracy has been 'murdered' as soon as Parliament passed the resolution of abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35A in Jammu & Kashmir. Both these articles gave special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir.
On ground the leaders of both these parties along with the workers and activists have shown no remorse. The remorse is limited to issuance of few press statements here and there while doing nothing substantial. The inaction from these political figures has yet again proved that many a slip between cup and the lip.
Political analysts told Early Times that leaders of NC and PDP could have reacted to the development in more pro-active manner adding that these people are driven by lust for power. They said the leaders of NC and PDP like others are just waiting for the poll bugle to be sounded so that they could jump into the electoral fray.
"National Conference has three Members of Parliament in the Lok Sabha while as the PDP has two Members of Parliament in the Rajya Sabha. None of these members dared to offer resignation from their respective constituencies. If they would have resigned then there were chances that people would believe them," said the political analysts.
It would be in place to mention here that the two Rajya Sabha MPs of PDP Nazir Ahmad Laway and Mir Fayaz Ahmad protested in the upper house of parliament drawing sharp reaction from Chairman, Venkaiah Naidu. On the other hand the two Lok Sabha MPs of NC did not deem it appropriate to protest on the floor of the house.
"The case of NC MPs was strong since their senior colleague and the party President Dr. Farooq Abdullah was put under house arrest by the administration. Surprisingly, the MPs of Tamil Nadu based party Dravida Munetra Kazagham (DMK) raised the issue of house arrest of NC President and demanded his immediate release with the NC MPs being mute spectators," said the political analysts.
NC Lok Sabha MPs Mohammad Akbar Lone and Hasnain Masoodi were too timid in their response and this was aptly proved on the floor of the house. Both these leaders claimed that there was total black-out of their protest with the same not being broadcasted by the electronic media.
"The protest of PDP MPs was carried by some of the news channels and also by print media but no such coverage was given to NC MPs since there was no protest from them. Had these parliamentarians (both NC and PDP) resigned from the respective houses it would have automatically hogged the limelight. Since this did not happen people are forced to cast aspersions on the role of these legislators and their parties," said political analysts.
The political analysts said that the leaders of political parties like NC and PDP like Congress and Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) have their eyes focused on assembly elections. They said these people want to taste power yet again without thinking for the aspirations of common masses.
