Announcement of Mian Altaf’s candidature provides ammunition to PDP
4/1/2024 11:03:41 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 1: The announcement of Mian Altaf as a party candidate for the newly shaped Anantnag-Rajouri seat provided ammunition to the PDP to attack the National Conference by sabotaging opposition unity.
As reported earlier by this newspaper, the PDP was waiting for the coalition partner National Conference to unilaterally announce candidates for three Lok Sabha seats in Kashmir Valley.
Both parties are constituents of the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc in J&K.
Following the National Conference’s announcement of candidates for three seats in the Kashmir Valley, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is poised to unveil its own nominees for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Insiders reveal that the PDP has finalized its candidates during recent party meetings. However, the official declaration will be delayed until after the National Conference reveals its candidates.
This strategic maneuver serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it signals the PDP’s commitment to presenting a united front against the BJP. Simultaneously, it positions the National Conference as the party responsible for diluting the anti-BJP vote.
It is almost clear that PDP president Mehbooba Mufti is going to contest the election on the Anantnag-Rajouri Lok Sabha seat but the party was waiting for the NC to declare its candidate on the same seat.
The same is the story of the Srinagar-Pulwama seat where the NC vice-president Omar Abdullah is going to contest the election and the party has finalized the name of Wahid-ur-Rehman Parra on the same seat.
Furthermore, the delay provides an opportunity for PDP leadership to scrutinize and challenge the National Conference’s decisions, especially regarding their perceived alignment with the BJP.
Once the National Conference declares the names of its candidates for three seats in Kashmir Valley, the PDP will then disclose its nominees for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
