Dismal performance of BJP ministers disenchants people, seething anger across region
Shah seeks time to finalize list of probable aspirants
Jammu, April 25, (Scoop News)-Expressing complete aversion to the idea of inducting fresh faces among Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) ministers in ruling coalition, the natives of Jammu are feeling unruffled and unconcerned even as the meeting with the party president, Amit Shah, had remained inconclusive. “Show me what they have done for the people of Jammu during last three years,” asked Vikas Mahajan (19), a student of final year of graduation. “Except for filling their own coffers, they have done nothing for the poor people or students.

 Debate
Kashmir politicos on the same wavelength
K.N. Pandit Maddening media hype allowed to the atrocious treatment of a minor Muslim girl in the village Rassana in Kathua district will cost dare to the ruling BJP. Line of discretion has been crossed in a bid to garner elusive goodwill of the community, which, however, is a sickening subject. BJP higher echelons have fallen in the trap of a meticulous conspiracy hatched by ISI, Hurriyat and PDP combine. General Secretary Ram Madhav has unwittingly proved his naivety by giving an incoherent and inexperienced interview to electronic media at Jammu. Essentially, this is an inter-clannish feud of Bakarwal community in the region. The focal point in the narrative i...

Time To Pause And Reflect
By B L Saraf People in Jammu region are fighting a war that circumstances have thrust upon them . A war - waged , without arms and ammunition , neither for annexation of the territory nor to vanquish any one . It is , undoubtedly , an existential battle – one to save whatever has been left with them . Very rightly , a Jammuite feels political marginalized , geographically squeezed , emotional under siege and let down by the very persons whom he brought from nowhere and placed on the pedestal . Worst of all , he stands accused of that what he stood against and fought all his life despite grave and persistent ...

Article 370 will stay
Belated though, but a welcome development
B L Saraf What should have been asserted at the time when PDP- BJP coalition government took reigns in J&K has, alas, come when the dispensation is half way through. Union Minister of State for Home informed Lok Sabah on 27th March that “there was no proposal under consideration to scrap Article 370 which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir.” Though belated, it is a reassuring statement. We must welcome it. PM Modi has been talking about cooperative federalism. Pious declaration, indeed. But his four years governance record, unfortunately, suggests the opposite. If the intention has to translate it into reality then s...

Demographic ‘invasion’ unnerves tolerant, peaceful Jammu
Straight Talk
K B Jandial While the Constitution has made India a secular and democratic nation, political parties have negated this basic feature by dividing the people on sectarian lines and threatening peaceful coexistence of people of all religions and communities. They did it by exploiting religious, caste and regional susceptibilities of India’s innumerable communities and faiths through vote bank politics that serve the interest of particular groups of voters, often to the exclusion of the interest of others. Regrettably, no effective system is in existence to prevent use of sectarian card for petty political ends. J&K is no exception to divisive politics. Over the years, pol...

Talk to Pakistan but what?
K.N. Pandita The simple reason for Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to dismiss Finance Minister Drabu was that Drabu thought Kashmir was not only a political issue while for Mehbooba Kashmir is only a political issue to which Pakistan is a party. Hence, her insistence that India talks to Pakistan. What Drabu said trivializes CM’s stance. In the beginning Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s discourse was India should talk to Pakistan to resolve ‘Kashmir issue’. It has gradually shifted to a new narrative viz. India and Pakistan should reconcile and not confront. More recently, her assertion graduated to India and Pakistan talk the Vajpayee way. New Delhi does not respond. ...

Hurriyat G’s New Chief And His Views - How to read them ?
By B L Saraf Politics in and about Kashmir is as unpredictable as its weather . With respect to that of the separatists , so can be said with a great deal of authenticity . Given the one dimensional – rather stubborn - stand on vital issues , Hurriyat leadership, of any hue, provides very little to make a fair and dispassionate analytical comment on their politics and the politicking . Nevertheless , the statement of Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai - interim Tehrik-e Hurriayat Chairman - has opened up a small window enabling one to make a comment, from separatist’s perspective , on the ongoing violent turmoil in J &K . In a...

Carrying battle to the broad masses
K.N. Pandita In a democracy, masses of people decide who they want to rule the country. Equally important is showing respect to the verdict of the people once it is announced. General election of 2014 that threw up BJP as a majority party with unprecedented number of parliamentary seats in its kitty is of special historical importance for our country. It marked a major ideological shift in Indian politics. A close observer of Indian political scenario for decades together had no difficulty in anticipating the fallout of ideological clash that had been thrown up by the results of that election. All nationalistic and sensible persons deeply concerned with the progress of the coun...

Axed Drabu’s doctrine calls for serious debate
Straight Talk
K B Jandial Much has been said and written on the unceremonious exit of one time confidante of both Muftis, Haseeb Drabu from the cabinet for his “out-of-box” comment on Kashmir issue at PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s event in New Delhi on March 9. His reported observations that J&K is neither a political issue nor a conflict State have triggered a storm that robbed Haseeb of his coveted position in the Govt. His new philosophy received instant reaction that obviously was diverse depending upon the sensibilities of the region concerned; in Jammu, it was called a new nationalist voice of Kashmir, while some say that he was “crucified” for telling the truth; but Kashm...
