Mainstream politics in Jammu and Kashmir is suffering from many fronts as they have been only witnessing sudden twists and turns in the events around them and the latest has been the efforts of friendship between India and Pakistan to hammer out a solution to all their issues.
PAGD was formed by the mainstream political parties of Jammu and Kashmir to start a peaceful struggle for the restoration of Article 370, and now it seems that they are maintaining silence because of the recent developments between India and Pakistan.
Not only the PAGD, but the other political forces in Jammu and Kashmir were also keenly watching the situation as signs are visible that New Delhi and Islamabad have been in talks for months and the statements issued on both the sides are confirming the same.
Omar Abdullah, who was very hopeful that if elections were held in Jammu and Kashmir, his party, the National Conference, will form the government, recently told media that there is no possibility of elections in 2021 and hinted that they will have to wait for the outcome of the Indo-Pak efforts to provide some relief to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Mehbooba Mufti, who has been at the forefront for the restoration of Article 370, recently welcomed the recent statement of Pakistan Army Chief, asking both the countries to bury the past and move forward.
She said that it is a good opportunity for both to find a solution to the Kashmir problem so that people on both sides of the border also enjoy the fruits of peace and progress.
