Omar working overtime to break PAGD?
Advises his father not to annoy GoI, concentrate more on party affairs

Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 25: The cracks within the Peoples Allinace for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) have become wide and open as speculations are rife that National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah is “working overtime” to break the alliance.
According to the sources Omar Abdullah has asked his father Farooq Abdullah to concentrate more on the party at the ground level rather than focussing on PAGD.
It seems that senior Abdullah has taken his son’s advice seriously as the NC a few days back came out with a statement that it will soon start a programme to galvanize its party cadre across Jammu and Kashmir.
It’s in place to mention here that the rumblings within the PAGD started with the distribution of tickets among the different units of this amalgam when problems surfaced in PC, PDP and other groups as the NC grabbed lion’s share.
PDP president Mehbooba Mufti is reportedly trying to downplay the problems that were created by Omar Abdullah’s alleged backroom pressure on his father to give tickets to NC supporters even in the strongholds of PDP and PC. Sajad Gani Lone faced a lot of pressure during the distribution of tickets and all the insiders of PAGD attribute this problem to Omar Abdullah and his backroom interventions. “When Sajad Gani Lone felt that his party would split on the issue of proxy candidates, he decided to quit PAGD as there was no response from the senior leaders of the amalgam” one of his close associates told this newspaper.
Prior to this, on December 23, last year, when elections for the DDC polls were announced, the National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah dropped enough hints at a party function in Srinagar that victory in DDC polls is the NC’s win and not for the alliance.
The speeches of the father- son duo were clearly indicative of the fact that the National Conference believes it was the party’s victory.
“These elections are not the success of Dr Farooq, Omar, Sagar or any other NC leader, but it’s the victory of our ground level worker.
This time, we didn’t publish posters and never went for campaigning. The only thing we did was that we told our local level leaders to tell workers that it was a fight to get back our lost identity,” Omar had said.
He had said that entering into an alliance wasn’t so easy. “In last Parliamentary polls, we were against each other everywhere. But for the larger interests of J&K and its people, we decided to leave aside our differences. Our leaders offered huge sacrifices by not contesting in the seats where they were strong as we left seats for alliance leaders,” Omar had stated.
