Mehbooba punctures I.N.D.I.A alliance in Kashmir
Says PDP ready to contest elections separately

Early Times Report

Shopian, Nov 29: Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday made it explicitly clear that her party is ready to fight the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections separately.
Talking to reporters after addressing a party convention here in South Kashmir, Mehbooba said, “Every party has to fight its own war. Why should our party or any other party leave any seat?”
Replying to a query about National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah saying that NC would contest the polls alone, Mehbooba said, “He (Omar) has said nothing wrong. No constituency is any political party’s fiefdom. Why should we leave something or they (NC) leave anything. Every party has to fight its own battle.”
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, “It seems much hyped I.N.D.I.A alliance of the opposition parties has crumbled under its own weight in Kashmir.”
He said, “Omar Abdullah during his recent speeches has made it clear that NC wants to contest the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections alone, while Mehbooba has made it clear that every party should fight its own battle.”
Pertinently, the National Conference and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are a part of the I.N.D.I.A alliance, a grand opposition alliance on the national level.
“When the I.N.D.I.A was formed it was decided that NC and PDP would contest the Lok Sabha elections jointly. But the recent developments and the statements from the leaders of both the parties are an indication that NC and PDP are in no mood to carry out any political activity collectively,” the analyst added.
The NC leaders led by Omar Abdullah have launched frontal attacks on the PDP during the recently held party conventions. They (NC leaders) have been alleging that PDP is “responsible” for J&K losing its special status and have dropped enough hints that they are in no mood to enter into any seat sharing agreement with the Peoples Democratic Party.
