 Debate
Is PDP dictating terms?
By K.N. Pandita Mahbooba Mufti’s predilection for projecting herself as a Kashmiri alienated from India is her old gimmick. In all probability, New Delhi is more amused than concerned about the tantrum she has begun to exude regarding conditions for forming coalition government with BJP after the demise of her father. Peoples Democratic Party was born from the womb of militancy when it was at its peak in Kashmir in 1999. After the fall of Janata government in New Delhi, late Mufti Sayeed was left stranded in the musical chair of Kashmir politics. He had left Congress long back...

Political Stalemate in J&K
By Amit Kushari IAS( Retd) Almost a month has passed after the death of Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, but so far no political Government could be formed in J&K because of the inherent absurdities of a PDP- BJP government which Mufti Sahab could cleverly brush under the carpet with his vast experience and statesman like qualities. A government which is popular in Kashmir province cannot be popular in Jammu province and a government which is popular in Jammu is not likely to be popular in Kashmir. Kashmir and Jammu are two diverse territories having almost nothing in common....

Face to face with Frankenstein
By K.N. Pandita Three weeks have gone by when J&K chief minister Mufti Sayeed breathed his last. His successor should have been announced forthwith and the new government cobbled together without loss of time. It has not happened. Mahbooba Mufti, daughter of the late chief minister, an MP and President of her party (PDP), took time to come out of mourning. However, even after the days of mourning were over, the party took another two weeks to decide that Mahbooba would lead the party in the legislature. The Governor asked the coalition partners to inform him about the next step. While BJP stuck to the stipulation in the Agreement of Alliance that the chief minister woul...

She is her own person
Mehbooba knows what she has to do; men should learn to respect woman
By Binoo Joshi I am writing this piece as a woman. But this does not mean that I am prejudiced against men. Waves after waves have washed the political terrain of Jammu and Kashmir following the sudden death of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in early January. This has left a void, which many political players available on the current political scene , would be unable to fill. This is a bitter truth. Another harsh reality is that Mehbooba Mufti, the daughter of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, is being pressurized to take a decision whether she wants to wear the mantle for whic...

“Death came faster than what Mufti planned for”
Could not get time to see Mehbooba succeeding him as CM
By Rahul Jalali As Jammu and Kashmir waited for its Chief Minister to assume office, this trouble torn state started a new precedent. Normally delays in appointing a CM take place because it becomes difficult to arrive at an acceptable consensus on a name, but in the case of J and K this conventional norm was turned on its head, when instead of WHO, the reason for delay became WHEN? Mahbooba Mufti the universal choice of her party as a successor to her father Mufti Mohd. Sayeed was taking a long time to say yes. Though the official explanation was that the lady was in mourning, but t...

He said no decision would be taken without taking Pandit IDPs on board.

Will Mehbooba carry forward Mufti’s legacy?
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Ever since the sad demise of Mufti Sayeed, his inheritors are talking about his legacy and solemnly affirming to carry it forward. But is it so simple, given the complexities and wide ranging legacy? Are his political inheritors equal to the daunting task? Is there any indication of way forward? Political impasse that unfortunately followed his death leading to avoidable Governor’ rule does not, in any manner, so far assure the people of the strength and capabilities of his legatees. Mufti’s heir apparent and the party will have to tread on razor’ edg...
