Early Times Report

Jammu, December 7: As the leadership of the National Conference appears to be adamant about leaving for any Parliamentary seat for the constituents of the Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) in Kashmir Valley, the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) is seriously thinking to “skip” the coming Lok Sabha elections.
Instead of fielding any candidate for any Parliamentary seat, the PDP is likely to declare unconditional support to the candidates of the National Conference to corner the “coalition partner”.
By skipping the Lok Sabha elections PDP would give a message across the Kashmir Valley that the party is least concerned about power.
The statement issued by the PDP regarding the speech of the party president in Ganderbal is a clear indication of the party’s future course of action.
Without naming any political party, the PDP president Mehbooba Mufti emphasized unity being the only safeguard in the face of the onslaught on rights and dignity of the people of J&K but she also mentioned that those against unity see elections and electoral victory as the ultimate goal.
“In present times, our very survival is being questioned. It is incumbent that we unite at all levels and think beyond elections and electoral victories. Those against unity see elections and electoral victory as their penultimate goal. This approach is antithetical to aspirations and expectations of our people from us,” Mehbooba said.
Underscoring a commitment to addressing the unspoken concerns and aspirations of the populace, Mehbooba said “I am not here for elections but to articulate the silence of the people”.
As reported earlier NC leadership, especially Omar Abdullah, has decided not to leave any Lok Sabha seat for the PDP in the coming Parliamentary elections.
In the 2019 general elections, the NC had won all three seats of Kashmir Valley including Anantnag so the party is not ready to leave any seat for PDP.
