Malice against ‘outsiders’, BJP joins bandwagon?
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Winning elections is perhaps easier than running a Government, more so when it is a coalition of parties with opposite ideologies. Parties ‘sacrifice’ their ideologies, wittingly or unwittingly to remain in power. Nothing could be more demonstrative of this political compulsion than north pole-south pole alliance Government in India’s most sensitive state of J&K. Some may call it political opportunism or lust for power as once die-hard political outfit doing just opposite to what its leaders had been propagating in the past. BJP, ultra nationalist party, is in a...

Mehbooba Wins – Challenges before her
By B L Saraf Mehbooba Mufti has won Anantnag Assembly by –election to retain the C M chair . That an incumbent political functionary , who combines in himself / herself supreme executive authority , comes out a winner in an interim poll is , generally , a foregone conclusion .So ,there is nothing special about C M Mehbooba’s present win . That , however , does not detract from her proven credentials to be a winner at the hustings . Except noticing that she has won in alliance with BJP , this election doesn’t call for a hair splitting analysis . But then ...

Thwarting KPs, Sainik colonies is not Kashmiriyat
Straight Talk
By:K B Jandial Along with stepped up militants’ attacks bizarre things are happening in Kashmir that again put much hyped “Kashmiriyat” to test. These weird developments is part of Pakistan’s new strategy to foment wide spread trouble this summer.

While PDP, author of soft separatism, is criticized for continuous detention of separatists like previous Governments BJP, once an ultra-nationalist party, is mutely listening to anti India rants and in...

Fractured indiscrimination not acceptable
By K.N. Pandita Chief Minister seems to have given some serious thought to her government’s policy towards the displaced Kashmiri Pandits. It is reflected in her vote of thanks speech in the assembly as well as in other public announcements and addresses. A changed and softened attitude is in fitness of things and stands out as a sign of matured statesmanship. That is what was lacking in most of the leaders who ruled the roost ever since militancy surfaced in the State. Therefore revisiting the policy towards the displaced community has to be hailed as a healthy sign. Howe...

Disputing the Return of the Native
(Open letter to the Prime Minister)
By K.N. Pandita Honourable Prime Minister, Return and Rehabilitation of the displaced community from the Valley of Kashmir in the aftermath of armed insurgency of 1990, occasionally comes up for consideration at the level of State and Central governments.

The patent rhetoric of the leaders in New Delhi and in Srinagar all these years has been that Pandits are integral to Kashmir social ethos. B...

Why not support Mehbooba on Accession & Pakistan?
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Mehbooba Mufti is perhaps the first Chief Minister of J&K to publically hail J&K accession with union of India and that too in Kashmir. She even justified this decision in the backdrop of unending bloodshed in Pakistan and other Muslim countries. By all means, it is a big political statement coming from the first woman CM, often linked with “soft separatism” in her earlier avatar. It can become a turning point in the State’s political narrative. At her maiden public rally at Anantnag after becoming Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti said, “Sheikh Abdullah took th...
