Alliance bound to crumble
11/17/2020 11:38:49 PM
The cracks within the Peoples’ Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD)—amalgam of Kashmir centric parties—are wide and open.
National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah reportedly sidelining a PDP leader, Nazir Khan, in Beerwah constituency in central Kashmir’s Budgam district and giving mandate to a NC leader to contest the forthcoming District Development Council elections has exposed the rift within the PAGD constituents. The PDP leader has decided to contest these polls as an independent candidate and has already filed the nomination papers for the same.
This drama has come to fore just 2-days after, PAGD vice-president, Mehbooba Mufti, bragged that the alliance has been formed for a bigger cause and bickering over the DDC polls doesn’t make sense.
This is just a beginning of bickering within the PAGD and it’s none other than Omar Abdullah, who has initiated it. Peoples Democratic Party, National Conference, Peoples Conference and other parties have different ideologies despite that they have come on a single platform just to challenge New Delhi. Everyone is aware of the fact that this “marriage of compulsion” between these parties won’t last long as these political formations have been bête-noire of each other for the past so many years.
The bickering, which Mehbooba Mufti, had tried to downplay has already drawn the first blood and by the time eight phases of DDC polls will be over we can expect to see many PDP and NC leaders contesting the elections against the PAGD candidates.
The experiment of Kashmir centric parties to come together is bound to fail as these political formations are poles apart. The tall claims of the PAGD that they will get everything back are nothing but a hoax aimed at hoodwinking the common people. The Kashmir centric leaders are still under the misconception that they can blackmail New Delhi and get their way. But someone needs to tell them that they don’t stand anywhere as the times have changed and once the delimitation process is completed their dream of ruling J&K again will end up once for all.
Mehbooba Mufti, who was claiming that they have bigger cause to fight for, will be very soon resolving the issues within the PAGD. The NC vice-president sidelining a PDP candidate has drilled a small hole and this is likely to become large in coming days. One can just wish luck to Mehbooba and other PAGD leaders, rest it’s an established fact that alliance is bound to fail and has no future.
