Early Times Report

JAMMU, Nov 22: NC president and former J&K CM Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday claimed that the "successive Union Governments have failed to engage the sentiment in Kashmir in a sustainable and reconciliatory manner". Did he try to say that he and others with whom New Delhi engaged with at regular intervals between 1947 and 2016 did represent the sentiment in Kashmir"?
In 1947, Prime Minister Nehru and NC president Sheikh Abdullah talked to each at the time of the state's accession and the result was the transfer of political power from Jammu to Kashmir and elevation of Sheikh Abdullah to the post of Wazir-e-Azam. Again in 1952, there were talks between Nehru and Sheikh on the Centre-state relations.
Between 1974 and 1975, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's representative Parthasarthy and Sheikh's lieutenant Mirza Afzal Beg held talks and the result was the fall of the Congress Government and the installation of Sheikh Abdullah as J&K CM. In 1984, Indira Gandhi and Sheikh Abdullah's son-in-law, Gul Shah, held talks and the result was the formation of the Congress and NC break away group under Gul Shaha. The government fell in 1986.
In 1986, Indira Gandhi's son and Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and Farooq Abdullah taked to each other for months and the outcome of the talks was the conclusion of a power-sharing formula and appointment of Farooq Abdullah as J&K CM for the second time in 1987 after wholesale rigging of elections. In 1996, then Prime Minister Narasimha Rao and Farooq Abdullah held talks. The result was Farooq Abdullah won 57 seats and formed his government for the third time.
In 2002, Sonia Gandhi and PDP chief late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed held talks for months together and the result was the formation of a coalition government in the state under Mufti Sayeed. Other coalition partners were the Congress, the Panthers Party and the People's Democratic Front. PDP was handed over power, despite the fact that the Congress had more MLAs.
In 2008, Sonia and NC leadership held talks for at least two months and the talks led to the appointment Farooq Abdullah's son, Omar Abdullah, as J&K CM for the first time and he held the office for a full term. The Congress functioned as a junior partner. In 2014 and till February 28, 2015, PM Narindra Modi and the BJP entered into talks with the Muftis and the result was the formation of the Mufti Sayeed-led PDP-BJP coalition government. This is the whole sotry. It is for Farooq Abdullah to say or to not say if these leaders in Kashmir represented or not represented sentiment in Kashmir.
