Will Muzaffar Beigh bring Altaf Bukhari back into PDP fold?
Speculations over PDP patron taking control within party gain momentum

Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 29: With the rebellion in the PDP gaining momentum with each passing day, speculations are rife that the PDP patron Muzaffar Hussain Beigh may revoke the expulsion order of the PDP leaders who were recently removed from the party’s basic membership over meeting foreign delegation here.
As per the sources, the growing differences between the PDP President Mehbooba Mufti and its patron Muzaffar Hussain Beigh could turn the tables within the party around anytime and a major breakthrough in party’s forthcoming strategy is expected anytime soon.
There are also speculations that the PDP patron may revoke the expulsion order of the eight PDP leaders who were removed over meeting the team of delegates in Jammu and Kashmir.
“There are chances that the expelled leaders would be reinstated by Beigh who at present is a PDP patron and has the authority to revoke an expulsion or suspension of any member. The talk of the town is that the expelled leaders will have a home coming soon,” sources said.
On the other hand, a former PDP rebel and minister Altaf Bukhari has rejected the reports of him floating any new political party in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir. “This news (of floating a new political party) seems to have been floated with a single-minded agenda to mislead and confuse,” a spokesperson for Bukhari said.
With Bukhari dismissing reports about the new political party in the offing, the question is where will the “like-minded” people go? “Both Beigh and Bukhari are using the same language, raising same demands, making same rhetoric. It is but natural that the duo will have a major role to play and there are apprehensions that the PDP sans Mehbooba is coming into the being,” says a political leader.
On the other hand, the central government conferred the PDP patron Muzaffar Beigh with prestigious Padma Bushan- an award that was never given to even the PDP founder Mufti Sayeed even posthumously.
The award has hinted at the major political breakthrough with reports suggesting that the government of India has extended an olive branch to Beigh with speculations rife that the PDP patron will have a major role to play. “Beigh wants more and more people by his side and he is well within the powers of revoking the suspension of expelled leaders of the PDP. Who knows he may even get AltafBukhar back into the fold and form a front which the central government can rely on,” says a senior Srinagar based political leader.
The leaders who were expelled recently were Dilawar Mir, Rafi Ahmad Mir, Zaffar Iqbal, Abdul Majeed Padroo, Raja Manzoor Khan, Javaid Hussain Baig, Qamar Hussain and Abdul Rahim Rather -- all former MLAs.
However, expelled Dilawar Mir questioned the legality behind his expulsion, stating that no one except the PDP President can remove a former legislator from his post. He even yelled at still being a PDP man.
