Posturing won’t help NC
8/6/2020 12:26:18 AM

Kashmir centric parties are making an attempt to stage a comeback by toeing separatist line. The National Conference, which had hinted that it’s comfortable with the change in status-quo of J&K, has taken a U-turn and has started flogging a dead horse again.
The NC is trying to create a notion that the resignation of its chief spokesman, Aga Ruhullah, cannot be overlooked. Ruhullah had resigned soon after Omar Abdullah wrote an Oped in a national daily stating that he won’t contest the assembly elections till J&K’s statehood is restored. He had given a clear hint that his party has moved forward vis-à-vis revocation of Articles 370 and 35-A. But NC seems to have taken a refuge in Ruhullah’s resignation and is apparently citing it as a reason for taking a U-turn. Despite Ruhullah taking his bosses head on, NC has not expelled him from the party. It appears to be a fixed match.
The NC leaders should realize that they cannot hoodwink the people anymore as they stand exposed. The slogans which they raised and the roadmaps which they projected during the past seventy years stand punctured today. By treading the same old path they are not doing any good to their party and the people of Kashmir. They should muster courage and speak the truth. They need to tell the people that J&K’s special status has gone forever and it won’t come back. By raising hue and cry they are trying to create a notion that something will happen. But it’s just a pretension which NC is resorting to. The NC leaders are aware of the fact that their party has almost crumbled and they don’t enjoy the support of people. After the NC leaders were placed under detention people did not make any attempt to seek their release. If NC wants to survive then it should stop enacting dramas and become a part of J&K’s development. Toeing the line of separatists won’t help the party’s cause. People know it very well that both Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah are good showmen and to remain relevant they can go to any extent.
The NC leadership is left with only two options other it has to accept the change and remain in the mainstream camp or it has to give up all the privileges and perks and join the separatist camp. Ball is in NC’s court.
