Kashmir centric mainstream leaders under scanner
Face corruption, other charges; will have to answer direct questions
1/23/2020 12:05:59 AM

SRINAGAR, Jan 22: Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, who kick started Centre’s outreach programme in the summer capital has once again hinted that the Kashmir centric politicians will have to answer many questions in coming days. Naqvi alleged that all parties in Kashmir were involved in political corruption during the past 70 years.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, “The statements being issued by the central leaders indicate that Kashmir centric politicians are in a big mess. Even if they are released from the custody they will have to answer many uncomfortable questions and if they are unable to give satisfactory answers they may end up in another jail after they are released.”
It’s in place to mention here that more than 40 Kashmir leaders, including three former chief ministers of the erstwhile J&K State, Farooq Abdullah his son Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, were detained on and after August 5, 2019, when Centre announced its decision to abrogate Article 370 and divided the erstwhile State into two Union Territories. Many of these leaders have been released during the past few months but three former chief ministers and few others continue to remain under detention. He said that Centre launching an outreach programme in Jammu and Kashmir and making development a plank to bring the people close to the administration is a “slap on the face of such leaders” who used to claim that no progress and development can take place in Kashmir till the so-called issue is resolved."
People participating in huge numbers in the developmental activities has proved it beyond doubt that a common man in Kashmir is not interested in the politics of separatism and sedition, which was preached by a handful of people,” the analyst added.
An observer said, “The situation which has emerged post August 5 has brought to fore that it was not separatists only, who were responsible for Kashmir being pushed to the edge. Mainstream parties too played a significant role in keeping the conflict alive and to keep themselves relevant.”
He said, “At present central leadership is only talking about the corruption but it looks evident that role of the mainstream politicians in keeping the Kashmir conflict alive will also be looked into. The new leaders who are coming to fore could be the ones who would be given a chance, the old ones look set to be remain caught in wrangles.”
