Early Times Report

Srinagar, May 20: Even as the rival political parties have been saying that National Conference was “keeping doors open” for prospective alliance with the Bharatiya Janta Party in future, the NC President, Dr Farooq Abdullah alone attended the swearing-in ceremony of the Congress government in Karnataka, while his son and successor Omar was conspicuous for his absence.
While as the senior politicians including Sajad Lone, who heads the Peoples Conference have accused the NC of being soft towards BJP since the valedictory event of the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir, the NC seems to be in “a balancing tactics.”
It’s pertinent to mention that the Dr Abdullah’s counterpart from the Peoples Democratic Party, Mehbooba Mufti also attended the swearing in ceremony of the Karnataka government on May 20.
The PDP unlike the NC was prompt enough to make the news public.
By afternoon the PDP social media handles had posted pictures of Mehbooba at the event. “PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti attends the swearing-in ceremony of the newly-elected Karnataka Government in Bengaluru,” the PDP said.
The NC however kept the attendance at the south India event a low-key.
In a show of opposition unity, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Nationalist Congress Party President Sharad Pawar, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin and National Conference president attended the swearing-in ceremony of Siddaramaiah as the Karnataka Chief Minister on Saturday in Bengaluru.
The Chief Ministers of Congress-ruled states - Bhupesh Baghel (Chhattisgarh), Ashok Gehlot (Rajasthan) and Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu (Himachal Pradesh), and Bihar Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav (RJD) were also present.
The rivals have been saying that the NC didn’t even react to the expulsion of Rahul Gandhi from the Parliament.
Despite repeated attempts the NC leaders were not available for comments.
