Politics of opportunism in Kashmir must stop

By Financial express

In J&K, rather than focusing on the well-being of the people, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and National Conference (NC), politics of these two major political parties revolved around Article 370 of Indian constitution that accorded ‘special status’ to J&K.

Therefore, once this Article was abrogated and the erstwhile state of J&K bifurcated into union territories of J&K and Ladakh, these political parties lost much of their relevance as well as public support as the people realised that they were being emotionally exploited. Both parties blamed the center for diluting Article 370, but the fact is that they were themselves party to any amendments and modifications to the same

PDP founder Late Mufti Mohmmad Syed was an influential Congress stalwart, and so, any changes in constitutional provisions that took effect during the regime of then Prime Minister cum Chief Minister G M Sadiq happened under Syed’s very nose.

Thus, if PDP feels that the status of J&K has been tinkered with over the years, then the PDP founder, can’t absolve himself of not having objected. Infact, by allowing the same to happen, he became a party to what it later complained were gross wrongdoings.
