Kashmir netas to float 'Alliance for statehood'

Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 13: In a bid to resurface on the political turfs of Kashmir ahead of the proposed Assembly elections in the Union Territory, some of the senior politicians from various regional parties are looking ahead to forge unity on the lines of "alliance for statehood."
Sources said a former banker-turned-politician, who had resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party, has been asked to finalize the name for the prospective alliance on the lines of "alliance for statehood."
Sources said the said politician is working on a plan, which his "close friend" and ousted PDP leader, is looking ahead to execute in Kashmir. The ousted PDP leader has been in touch with some "like-minded people from other parties on this front."
Sources said the alliance would keep restoration of the statehood as its manifesto for the upcoming Assembly elections, likely to be held in the middle of 2020.
Sources said the ousted PDP leader, who is also a businessman turned politician looks ahead to forge alliance with over six prominent leaders, who have also been ministers in the previous governments.
Sources said those who could be members of the prospective alliance are leaders from Rafiabad, Tangmarg, Budgam, apart from one from Pulwama.
Sources said while negotiations are underway, the "like minded" faces have sought a proper banner name for the alliance and thus this work has been assigned to the former banker.
"Basically he is well versed in coining acronyms so we've asked him to do the job," the sources said.
As already reported by the Early Times, the former banker and his "close friend", both of whom were previously associated with the PDP have joined hands for their "prospective political career."
Interestingly, however, during their sting in the PDP, the two were allegedly into strained relations.
A common friend of theirs had reportedly brought them closer by hosting them for the lunch in Jammu last winter.
Despite repeated attempts the said politicians couldn't be contacted for comments.
