Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 6: Within five years after demise of late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has been reduced from an alternative of the National Conference (NC) to a radical outfit by a coterie of communal leaders, who have hijacked the party after death its founder.
Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had established PDP, within three years after its formation, as a secular alternative to NC by government with Congress in the year 2002. Unfortunately his daughter Mehbooba Mufti has reduced this party to a communal outfit within five years after the death of its founder.
All founder members of the party except Mehbooba Mufti and Abdul Rehman Veeri were forced to quit the PDP by this coterie which is pursuing separatist and communal agenda.
From Muzaffar Beigh of Kashmir Valley and Trilok Singh Bajwa from Jammu, all close-aides of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed have resigned from the party after facing humiliation by the incumbent leadership time and again. Close-aides of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed-both from Jammu region and Kashmir Valley, who stood with like rocks through thick and thin from the time when he was Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president in early 1980s’ were forced the quit the party which they had formed with their political mentor in the year 1999 to provide a secular alternative to NC.
In Jammu region-four founder members of the party namely Trilok Singh Bajwa, Ved Mahajan, Daman Bhasin and Falail Singh along with other leaders have quitted the party recently after Mehbooba Mufti’s controversial statement on National Flag.
Ironically the coterie has abandoned the secular, visionary and revolutionary agenda of late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. The 'secular' PDP, which was founded by late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in the year 1999 with a sole aim to bring all regions and sub-regions of the State together, is unfortunately now turned into a communal, parochial and separatist outfits which is indulged into competitive separatism with Kashmir based parties. Majority of the members of this coterie are under the radar of central agencies for various crimes including terror funding and money laundering.
January 7 is the fifth-death anniversary of statesman Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, whose aim was to solve inter-regional dispute to provide a secular and socialist regional alternative in the state of J&K to get residents of this J&K from death and destruction. But after his death, the leadership of PDP adopted a parochial and communal approach as the communal and anti-India advisors of Mehbooba Mufti are working overtime to shatter late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed dream.
