NC ON MOVE
The National Conference is presently the face of resistance against all the moves of centre in Jammu and Kashmir starting from August 5, last year. Dr. Farooq Abdullah has even blamed the central leadership of BJP for trying to change the demography in Jammu and Kashmir by trying to make it Hindu majority area.
Recently National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah has surprised many of his friends in Delhi deciding to launch a joint struggle with five other political parties including PDP for the restoration of article 370 and has delinked politics from the elections.
Though his son Omar Abdullah is not in favor of any confrontation with New Delhi, he was silenced by the party cadre and senior leaders who cautioned Farooq Abdullah that if the party goes by Omar’s formula to participate in elections, the National Conference would get a drubbing of lifetime in such elections.
Omar has fears that the BJP government at the centre will go for elections without in spite of them and thinks that they may be all jailed again; his party colleagues have recently told the media.
Farooq Abdullah has recently said that his struggle is not against the government of India but limited to getting back what all had been snatched from the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He also distanced himself from any violent struggle.
