Fragile political alliances
3/24/2024 11:57:01 PM

The looming conflict between the National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the Lok Sabha seats in Kashmir is a reminder of the fragility of political alliances in the region.
While both parties are components of the INDIA Alliance, their inability to resolve disputes internally threatens to undermine the broader unity of the alliance.
Media reports detailing the PDP’s selection of candidates for key Lok Sabha seats, including the prestigious Anantnag-Poonch-Rajouri and Srinagar constituencies, underscore the growing tensions within the alliance.
With Mehbooba Mufti and Waheed-ur-Rehman Parra likely to be nominated for these significant seats, the PDP has clearly signaled its intent to assert its influence and stake its claim in the political landscape of Kashmir.
The accusations leveled by PDP leaders against the National Conference of disregarding coalition partners and acting in an “arrogant” manner highlight the underlying rifts that threaten to fracture the unity of the alliance.
Congress leaders are of the opinion that National Conference and the Peoples Democratic Party leaders should demonstrate statesmanship and a commitment to the greater good of people.
They believe that both parties must engage in transparent and inclusive decision-making processes that take into account the concerns and perspectives of all coalition partners.
By fostering a culture of collaboration and mutual respect, they can cultivate trust and solidarity within the alliance, thereby strengthening its foundations for the challenges ahead.
As the specter of conflict looms large, the National Conference and the Peoples Democratic Party are indulging in bickering and are preparing to take each other head on.
The National Conference has not named its candidates for Kashmir seats till date but the party vice-president Omar Abdullah has stated that NC would make the announcement soon.
PDP has been criticizing NC’s attitude suggesting that if Dr Farooq Abdullah had requested seats from Mufti, she would have willingly conceded all Kashmir seats to the NC. However, the NC has been dismissing the PDP’s relevance. The PDP leaders have warned that NC’s arrogance could lead to electoral repercussions similar to the NC’s defeat in 2002.
Mehbooba Mufti has already started campaigning for the Anantnag-Poonch-Rajouri Lok Sabha by touring different areas, while PDP leaders in Poonch and Rajouri are preparing booth-level committees in their respective areas.
