Cracks Appear
10/28/2020 12:10:02 AM
National Conference distancing itself from the flag remark of PDP president Mehbooba Mufti is a clear hint that Kashmir’s “grand old party” is in no mood to endorse such utterances which can put the NC in trouble. Mehbooba Mufti’s statement that she won’t hold the tricolor till J&K gets its flag back has put other Kashmir centric parties in a quandary. Her utterances have annoyed the nationalist people across the country and voices are becoming shriller to book her for sedition.
Senior National Conference leader Devender Singh Rana while reacting to Mehbooba’s statement stated that there could be no compromise on country’s sovereignty and integrity. “Jammu-based NC leaders expressed concern over Mehbooba Mufti’s remarks in a meeting with Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah. They have assured us that no statement will be made by any Gupkar Alliance leader that harms the nation’s interests,” Rana said.
It seems that cracks have already appeared and the so-called “People’s Alliance” may end up hitting a dead end soon. The leaders of the so-called alliance are not sure about what future holds for them and where are they heading towards. They know it very well that if they don’t fall in the line their political careers will end and they will never ever reach the secretariat again. For the past 70-years the Kashmiri centric leaders have always remained in the power corridors, but since 2018 their destiny has changed as they have been turned irrelevant and are finding it hard to locate their addresses. Kashmir centric leaders are aware of the fact that if Mehbooba keeps on issuing irresponsible statements all of them will end up in a big mess. After August 5, 2019, political scenario in Jammu and Kashmir has changed completely. The lines have been drawn as the special status stands abrogated and J&K has been turned into a union territory. Separatists stand tamed and Pakistan sponsored militants are looking for rat holes to hide. Situation in Kashmir is turning better and it appears that winds of change are blowing fast. Ones who used to say that no one will be left to lift the tricolour if J&K’s specials status is fiddled with have been left red faced. Young people have come forward in large numbers to fight the leaders who used to preach separatism and sedition and these youth are holding the tricolor very close to their heart.
