Coalition facing stiff opposition in ensuing MLC elections

early times report
JAMMU, Nov 20: With Jammu Kashmir Panchayati Raj Movement (JKPRM) and several other organisations taking pledge to campaign against the coalition candidates in ensuing MLC elections under Panchayat quota it will not be easy thing for both Congress and NC candidates to ensure their victory in December 3 elections.
The PDP which is a formidable challenge to the coalition candidates in Kashmir valley, in Jammu the BJP as well as BSP is posing a strong threat to alliance candidates as already a sizeable number of Panchs and Sarpanchs are up in arms against the coalition for its failure to empower the Panchayati Raj institutions in the state.
Fed up with the Government's rigid attitude on implementation of 73rd amendment of Indian Constitution to empower the Panchayats in the state JKPRM has decided to take on the coalition candidates by canvassing against them in the ensuing MLC elections.
This was already made clear by Shahnawaz Sultan convenor of the JKPRM who made a dig at coalition for its failure in strengthening the Panchayati Raj institutions in the state. The rigid attitude of the Government towards implementation of 73rd amendment has forced his organisation to come to announce its decision to campaign against the coalition candidates. Even the All Jammu Kashmir Panchayati Raj Conference (AJKPC) is on logger heads with the alliance partners after the Government did not pay any heed to provide the security to Panchs and Sarpanchs in the state facing the threat.
The AJKPC which had earlier termed the holding of elections a futile exercise unless and until the empowerment of Panchayats in the state is yet to decide its future course of action though Pradesh Congress chief Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz has pleaded it to reconsider its decision regarding boycotting the elections.
Besides over 200 Panchs and Sarpanchs in Bani Basholi area of Kathua district had also given the call to boycott the elections in protest against the failure of State Government to empower the elections making the situation for coalition more awkward.
The BJP has already started campaigning in Jammu seeking support for its two candidates from the region and has promised that the Party will continue its struggle for the empowerment of Panchayats in J&K.
The anti coalition campaign launched by various organisations of Panchs and Sarpanchs as well as other organizations is not a good omen for the coalition partners feel political analysts. They are also of the opinion that alliance has nothing to offer to Panchs and Sarpanchs during the campaign who are already up in arms against it for betraying them on the name of security and allied issues.
The panchs and sarpanchs organisations have been joined by AMCCC also which appealed them to vote against the political parties and elect an independent candidate among panchs and sarpanches as election. And only time will tell how the coalition will tide over these crisis say analysts.
