PDP, BJP pulling in different directions
Dialogue with Hurriyat

Early Times Report

JAMMU, May 19: The relations between PDP and its coalition partner, BJP, are turning bitter by the day. The PDP wants New Delhi to talk to what it calls "all stakeholders, including Hurriyat", to end unrest in Kashmir and resolve all the issues, including the issue of Kashmir. It has been saying and reiterating that a result-oriented dialogue with all the stakeholders is imperative to restore peace in the Valley and opining that not to hold talks with them would be only to cause more unrest in the Valley.
The BJP, on the other hand, has a different take. It has turned down the demand of the PDP, saying for it return of peace in the Valley is an important issue, and not a dialogue with separatists. It's not local BJP leaders, who are opposing the PDP's demand; it's top BJP leaders who have ruled out the possibility of talks between the Centre and the Hurriyat. BJP national president Amit Shah made it loud and clear in Jammu this month that there was no question of a dialogue with those who questioned the political status of Jammu & Kashmir and who wanted a regime outside the Indian Constitution. And, on Thursday, Union Finance Minister and Defence Minister Arun Jaitley took the same line in Srinagar.
"Our priority is to improve the situation first," Arun Jaitley told reporters when asked "if the Centre has any plans to hold talks with separatist groups like Hurriyat Conference in view of the demand repeatedly made by the BJP's coalition partner, the PDP".
Not only this, he made the confusion worse confounded when he told reporters that he didn't know if Mehbooba Mufti was being replaced as Chief Minister. "I have not heard of any such thing. I am not aware of this thing", he said when asked by a reporter whether there was a possibility of replacing Mehbooba Mufti as Chief Minister by a BJP nominee in view of the deteriorating security situation in Kashmir. Arun Jaitley made this statement on the day when replacement of Mehbooba Mufti as Chief Minister by a Jammu-based BJP leader had become a talk of the town after a news channel broke the story of rotational Chief Minister.
The two coalition partners treading different paths doesn't augur well for the state. The different paths they are treading have only helped their bitter opponents like the NC and the Congress to take advantage of the situation and further complicate matters in the state. Late Mufti was right when he said that it was a coalition of North and South Poles and the alliance was stitched to bridge the gulf between Kashmir and Jammu.
Developments as they have unfolded in the state after the formation of the PDP-BJP coalition government have only proved yet again that the contradictions between Jammu and Kashmir and between Kashmir and Ladakh are irreconcilable.
