NC facing revolt
11/24/2022 10:42:22 PM
National Conference is facing a revolt within its ranks when the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir are not that far away.
According to the media reports the resentment is brewing in the party due to senior leaders promoting their kith and kin are ignoring the young leaders.
Recently, Sameer Iqbal Bhat, zone president of the Youth National Conference (North), resigned from the post as well as from the basic membership of the party.
In a hard-hitting letter written to the party leadership Bhat had alleged that the NC has failed to come up to the expectations of the masses. “With a very heavy heart, I am bidding farewell to the party I joined with high hopes that the JKNC represents the aspirations of the people. I believe that this is the party that has always defended the rights and identity of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Bhat accused the NC leaders of being power hungry and being least bothered about the aspirations of the people.
Earlier this month, the National Conference appointed constituency in-charges for the next assembly elections. These constituency in-charges were appointed on recommendations rather than merit.
After the party made these appointments resentment started brewing and as a consequence, many young leaders are planning to quit the party.
The National Conference facing a crisis just ahead of elections is not good news for the party leadership. The forthcoming assembly polls in the Union Territory are not going to be that easy for any party as the political equations have changed post abrogation of Article 370.
If the NC fails to keep its flock together it can face a difficult situation in the upcoming elections. The party leadership should wake up and address the concerns of its workers and young leaders, who apparently look disillusioned and seem to have given up.
Another NC leader and former MLA from Ganderbal Sheikh Abdul Jabbar recently revealed that anger is brewing among dedicated workers and leaders of the party.
He accused the NC leadership of being “incompetent” to deal with the affairs within the party.
Bhat’s resignation and Jabbar’s assertions should serve as a wakeup call for the NC leaders. They need to introspect and reach out to the grass root workers, who can help the party in the forthcoming polls.
