Early Times Report
Jammu, June 13: A possible tussle between the PDP and a party legislator is in the offing with later even contemplating the ways to bid adieu to the party on whose ticket he contested and even won the 2014 assembly polls.
Speculations on Wednesday were rife that the leader in question has been holding discussions with his workers and close aides to work out ways about how he could leave the party if his demands aren't met by the leadership.
There are also reports that the said legislator has been bargaining hard with the party high command to seek a ministerial position for himself as he had defeated the sitting NC legislator in the 2014 polls and also campaigned for the party in other constituencies of Kashmir at that time.
In the past, the said leader hasn't left a single stone unturned to bash the senior party leaders, terming them failures and even back bitters. He had even predicted party's defeat during the parliamentary by-elections in Srinagar in the year 2017- April.
Pertinently, PDP lost the seat to NC's Dr. Farooq Abdullah with the very high margin. Though the polling percentage was meager on the Election Day, however, the NC managed to garb its votes while as the PDP was left behind, leaving the party into self-retrospection over what went wrong and where?
The legislator in question is a close relative of one of the sitting cabinet ministers of the present coalition and during all these years since the PDP came to power, he has been most vocal and got the title of PDP's firebrand leader.
If reports are to be believed, he has been for a quite long time demanding that his work should be respected by the party and that the place he deserves should be accorded to him without any delay. There are also complaints from him that he isn't being treated well by the party despite all the hardships he faced in getting the seat for it during the crucial polls three and a half years ago. He has been in the forefront opposing the induction of some people in the party that too without any contribution. The leader in the past has vehemently opposed the system under which those who couldn't even get more than 200 votes have been given the cabinet berths while as those who endangered their lives, contested elections and even won those with thumping numbers have been sidelined.
Now, if speculations turn out to be true and the leader in question deserts his party, the PDP will have made itself contended with mere 26 seats in its kitty. It would then cease to remain a single largest party after the BJP.
Early Times already reported last week that the disgruntlement within the PDP leaders is taking a toll with each passing day and how a former minister who was recently sacked from the cabinet spilled beans about his sacking and claimed that he was even getting offers of joining from the rival political camps.
