jammu, Jan 19: Even as the former Chief Minister and National Conference, President, Omar Abdullah has caused a stir by saying that he was feeling "demotivated" and "questioning continuing in politics", the statement has caused a stir in the party with NC leaders planning to seek explanation from him for his "demoralizing remarks" that can break the party.
Sources said the NC leaders believe that the statement of Omar Abdullah has "demoralized" the party cadres with many saying that "If the party President is confused why should others remain in the party led by a confused man."
Sources said the statement as made by Omar Abdullah has snowballed into a major controversy with the party leaders planning to call a meeting in this regard as otherwise many leaders are apprehended to leave the party.
It was reliably learnt that a delegation of senior leaders from Kashmir would soon call on NC patron Dr Farooq Abdullah with a memorandum seeking explanation from the party president over the future of the party.
"They (NC leaders) cannot be Mudayee Sust, Gawah Chust when the first family of NC is confused about the future," said a
Hum Tu Dhobain Hein Sanam!
Sources said many leaders from the NC visited the party headquarters in the summer capital seeking clarification from the NC on if the party was planning to "close down its shop."
"When the party president is not certain about his future in politics what should be the role of the cadres?" asked a political observer.
It is pertinent to mention that in a recent interview to a news portal Omar said, "I'm deeply jaded, I'm demotivated, I'm questioning continuing in politics, I've never been like this, I'm a changed person."
In the freewheeling interview he reportedly bared open his soul and reveals his self-doubts, loss of motivation and the fact he is struggling with the question of whether he should continue in politics
"I find it very difficult to motivate myself, I have lost motivation. A certain light inside may not have been switched off but it's a lot dimmer. I have never been like this." Omar Abdullah has also accepted that he is struggling with the question whether he should continue in politics. He said he has no easy answers and has lots of doubts.
Despite repeated attempts the NC leaders were not available for comments.
