Since her release, Muzaffar Beigh skips meeting PDP President Mehbooba Mufti
Wedges turning wider!

EARLY TIMES REPORT

JAMMU, Oct 21: When Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti was set free after 14 months long detention, besides her party men and coteries, even her political rivals including NC patriarch Dr Farooq Abdullah held meetings with her. However, one person who remained stoically missing from the scene was the patron of Mehbooba’s own party- Muzaffar Hussain Beigh.
As per the party insiders, Beigh hasn’t met Mehbooba even since she was released from custody and even when she attended the Gupkar declaration meet at Faroooq Abdullah’s residence, Beigh remained mysteriously absent. Sources said that wedge between Muzaffar Beigh and party president has been widening with each passing day since January, this year when Beigh indirectly held Mehbooba Mufti responsible for issuing provocative statements that led to downgrading of Jammu and Kashmir from state to a union territory along with abrogation of its special status.
On January 9, this year, Beigh said former chief minister and party president Mehbooba Mufti’s “provocative” statement over Article 370 resulted in downgrading of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories. “The statement was made by Mehbooba Mufti in my absence. I was not there when she made it. I have on record said that the statement like it resulted in downgrading of the state (JK) into union territories,” Baig, who is one of the founding members of the PDP and former deputy chief minister, told reporters at that time. He added the “threatening statement” to New Delhi should not have been made.
“If Jammu and Kashmir has to live together and if we have to bat for our rights, we have to talk with decency and humility,” the PDP leader said.
Beigh criticized the “provocative” statement of Mufti and said one cannot “threaten” the top leadership in New Delhi to see one’s grievances being heard. “We cannot get anything by browbeating and threatening Modi ji, home minister or NSA. As citizens of India, we should put before them our grievances and our problems with humility,” he added. “We believe in that approach. It was a provocative statement and it should not have been made,” Baig said on January 9.
The PDP patron was awarded Padma Bhushan last year that too at a time when the entire PDP leadership was in jail including party President Mehbooba Mufti. PDP leaders In the year 2018, there were speculations earlier rife that Beigh who has been one of the founding members of the PDP will join PC and announce its departure from PDP in which he spent around 19 years since 1999.
