Released from detention, NC leaders stay away from party meetings
2/21/2020 11:55:15 PM

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Feb 21: Even as over a dozen leaders of the National Conference have been released from detention undertaken after the abrogation of the special status on August 5, 2019, most of them avoid attending the party activities and prefer to sit back at home.
Since the abrogation of the special status, the NC has held at least three major meetings at party headquarters at the Nawa –e-Subh in Srinagar but those of the senior leaders released from prison stayed away from the meetings.
The latest meeting held on February 18, didn’t find any of the leaders who were released from the prison in the last few months.
In the absence of the senior leaders, party’s provincial secretary Showkat Ahmed Mir has been chairing most of the meetings.
Interestingly two of the Member Parliaments from the party who are otherwise free to move around stayed away from the latest meeting. Some of the NC leaders present at the meeting are understood to have questioned the absence of such faces at such a critical juncture.
“None of the senior leaders who have been released from prison or those who were never imprisoned have been hiding from the political turfs for reasons best known to them and this is a valid question many ask,” said one NC leader on the condition of anonymity.
He said even though the released leaders were intimated about the scheduled meetings, none of them turned up. “They have been staying away from the party on one pretext or the other but the fact is that they are away from the party on the whole,” he added.
The NC leader said most of those who attend the party meetings are the youth faces barring Showkat Ahmed Mir who is a retired government official.
It is pertinent to mention that barring senior leaders like former Chief Ministers, Dr Farooq Abdullah and his son, Omar Abdullah, and Ali Muhammad Sagar, all the three of whom have been booked under the Public Safety Act, most other NC leaders have been released.
