Centre’s outreach programme leaves Kashmir centric leaders bewildered
1/26/2020 12:09:37 AM

JAMMU, Jan 25: Union Ministers winding up their weeklong tour of Jammu and Kashmir with a promise of development, peace and prosperity, has left the Kashmir centric leaders bewildered.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that a few Kashmir centric leaders, who during the past one month have become active again termed the visit of the Central Ministers as a “futile exercise” aimed at “hiding the failures” of the government. “Many leaders, whose bosses are still under detention, seem to be in a shock. The Centre sending 36 Ministers to J&K has left them dumbfounded. These leaders during all these years had created a notion that people sitting in New Delhi don’t care for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. And they are not interested in what’s happening in J&K.”
One of the former ministers in the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir while reacting to the visit of Central ministers said, “It was a cosmetic exercise and waste of public money.”
He suggested that the visiting Central ministers should have met the Kashmiri leaders rather than reaching out to people.
The analyst said, “It seems Kashmir centric leaders have still not understood that they have been sidelined by the Centre and they don’t fit in new scheme of things.”
He said that the Central Ministers during their visit to Jammu region ensured that none of the local leaders “hijack the initiative” as most of these ministers made it clear to the people that they have come to them on the instructions of Prime Minister, NarendraModi.
An observer said, “The Central ministers, who visited Kashmir, went out on streets of Srinagar and Baramulla and interacted with the common people. This left Kashmir centric leaders, including the former J&K chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti, disoriented.”
It’s in place to mention here that Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Iltija Mufti, who has been running her mother’s twitter handle since August 5, 2019, termed the visit of central ministers as “acrobatics.”
The observer said that Kashmir centric leaders had created a notion that none of the elected leaders can walk on the streets of the Valley. “They (Kashmir centric leaders) had created a fear psychosis by propagating lies. All these myths which were created by them stand shattered. In fact people not coming out on streets to seek their release from detention has led to their credibility being eroded. Many people across the country are asking only one question, did these leaders really enjoy any support,” he added.
