Arch rivals about to stitch common ground, discussions gain momentum
Omar Abdullah subtly hints at PDP-NC bonhomie during coming polls

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 16: The bonhomie between the NC and the PDP seems to have been once again reincarnated in the present political crisis in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
As per the sources privy to the development there a hectic parlays going on between the two sides to stitch a common ground together between the two parties who were once the arch-rivals in the state's political spectrum.
There are already, as per the sources, confabulations going on between the two sides that the forthcoming polls in the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be fought by these two parties together and that too on the same agenda. A senior leader of National conference revealed that to defeat what he termed a divisive discourse taking toll at the national level will be the prime focus of the two parties during the polls and the duo will seek votes from the common masses of the State.
"The process witnessed a brief halt recently but the discussions have once again gained the momentum and there are high chances that the leadership of the two parties will meet to discuss the future course of action," said a party functionary hailing from national conference.
On the other hand, the PDP too seems to be much interested in the bonhomie and some party leaders have begun the discussions to implement the plan on ground.
There are reports that NC leader and former chief minister Omar Abdullah has already hinted at a possible alliance between NC and the PDP when he replied to the tweet made by BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav. Omar had reacted to Madhav's tweet, hinting that the NC and the PDP together can give a tough fight to the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir and that it was due to the boycott decision taken by both the parties together during the recently held ULB polls that the BJP managed to win few towns in the militancy infested region of the state.
Prior to this, PDP leader Syed Altaf Bukhari had made an open offer, advocating that NC and PDP should join hands for greater common good of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Bukhari made the similar statement on September 12 this year. In the interest of State and its people in particular, PDP will not shy away from fighting any nefarious designs jointly with NC and other regional political forces for safeguarding the special constitutional position of Jammu and Kashmir," Bukhari had stated.
Senior NC leader, Mian Altaf stated in September last week this year that the suggestion of NC and PDP joining hands for a joint fight on Article 35-A and against rise of communal forces in Jammu and Kashmir made by PDP senior leader and former finance minister Altaf Bukhari is a welcome move.
Interestingly, both the NC and the PDP seem to have turned the direction of their guns towards BJP instead of training them against each other. The two parties have stopped ridiculing each other and have unanimously been criticising the BJP and its policies. Only time is going to tell on which side will the wind blow.
