PDP facing internal challenges
1/21/2019 11:20:55 PM
The PDP, which enjoyed power till
November last is on the down the hill journey. It has expelled former Finance Minister Altaf Bukhari for anti-party activities. He has also been accused of conspiring to engineer a split in the party in 2016, soon after the death of then Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. Bukhari, 59, who is also an industrialist, was the front runner for the Chief Minister's post for his key role in forging an unprecedented alliance between the PDP, Congress and the National Conference to stake claim to form the government in November last year. The alliance between the three parties did not materialise in a coalition government as Governor Satya Pal Malik dissolved the Assembly. "Bukhari conspired and led dissent in the party at its most crucial stage which resulted in a serious damage to our efforts at implementing the Agenda of Alliance of our coalition government. While the party leadership was engaged in negotiations with its partner and the Government of India insisting on implementing some agreed points before forming the new government, the dissension weakened its bargaining position forcing subsequent events against its will," said a PDP spokesman. With Bukhari's ouster the PDP has become a poor political party and that Mehbooba was called the iron laday of the party seems to have lost her grip. The PDP spokesman said the party had been watching with concern Bukhari's activities for quite some time. "Ever since the passing of our founder Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, he has been pursuing his personal political ambition at the cost of the party and the state's interest," he said. Already five MLAs have joined Sajjad Lone, Chairman Peoples' Conference, but with the support of the five rebels from PDP Sajjad could not get the sufficient members to form a coalition Government with the BJP.
The spokesman said after the collapse of the coalition in June last year, Bukhari had "started open attempts at breaking the party by hobnobbing with its rivals. Though one swal; low does not make the summer similarly Bukhari's ouster from the PDP may not prove to be the ultimate fall of the PDP. But since the Assembly elections were due shortly or the next year Bukhari's ouster could prove a game changer for the PDP, trying to retain power. Bukhari never tried to clear the impression that he was at the centre of a 'rebellion' which was brewing in the party. Bukhari, a first-time legislator from the Srinagar's Amira Kadal constituency, was the likely candidate for the PDP, NC and the Congress when the three parties made a claim to form the government in November last year. This way the PDP seems to have lost the game against National Conference which continues to be full of political vigour. But the PDPO leadership believes that had not the party taken action against Bukhari the entire party would have to pack its cards.
