Early Times Report

Kishtwar, Nov 17: A day after People’s Democratic Party district president Kishtwar Sheikh Nasir Hussain blamed the National Conference for sabotaging and derailing the progress of Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), National Conference district president Kishtwar Tanveer Ahmed Kichloo termed local PDP leader as an “opportunist.”
Speaking to Early Times, Kichloo said that NC Kishtwar had offered 4 seats to PDP to contest which include Trigam, Mughal Maidan, Inderwal and Nagsini. “But PDP wants to contest from Kishtwar DDC constituency and Palmar constituency which are the strong bastion of National Conference,” he added.
Kichloo said that PDP was offered the seats from the areas from where PDP got majority of the votes during last assembly and Panchayat elections, but the PDP leader instead wants to safeguard himself and the father in law of former MLC Firdous Ahmed Tak.
“PDP district president is not even the voter of Kishtwar DDC constituency— he wants two seats for the party — one for himself (Kishtwar) and other for the father-in-law of ex PDP MLC (Palmar) which are strong bastions of NC and is unacceptable to the party” said Kichloo.
He said that out of 12 sarpanches in Kishtwar block, nine are from NC while in Palmar constituency, NC has five sarpanches. “We have tried hard to keep the flock of Gupkar alliance together, but the opportunist PDP leader is trying to secure his own interests,” he claimed.
“Our doors are still open for PDP— but we cannot compromise for Kishtwar and Palmar constituency— if local PDP leaders agree to shun their arrogance- NC is ready to support them as agreed in principle during talks at the highest level,” said Kichloo.
He said that party is ready to contest elections on its own in case the local PDP leader ignored the aspirations of the people and the NC cadres.
“Let me make it clear — we are not going to surrender DDC Kishtwar and DDC Palmar constituency— rest doors are open” said NC district president.
He said that they have also offered 4 seats to Congress and added that on one seat of Drabshalla— Congress party has withdrawn its candidate in support of the NC candidate who seem to be more strong in the area.
Kichloo said that the matter of Kishtwar is in the knowledge of party high command. “Local PDP leadership has even back tracked from Marwah and Warwan,” he added.
It is pertinent to mention here that talking to Early Times, PDP district president Kishtwar Sheikh Nasir Hussain had said that he is also an aspiring candidate for Kishtwar constituency and had stated that Gupkar alliance is yet to make the list of candidates for 8th and last phase of DDC elections. He accused the NC of playing “petty politics”.
He had said that NC is not following what has been agreed by the Gupkar alliance. “Announcing the name of the candidate ahead of list finalized by the Gupkar alliance is a mockery of the terms and conditions that binds the various parties that are the part of the alliance,” he had said.
