Grand alliance taking shape in J&K
3/14/2019 11:38:52 PM
Tigers If the state of Jammu and
Kashmir is concerned it may follow other states for the formation of a grand alliance for the purpose of contesting the Lok Sabha elections. No doubt the National Conference is riding a winning horse still it is pr epared to go the polls in alliance with the Congress. This way the BJP and the PDP may hit badly. The National Conference (NC) and Congress plan to go for a seat sharing in the upcoming parliamentary polls starting from April 11 this year. State Congress chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir said the party had left all options open at this time and the final decision would be made after his meeting with Congress President Rahul Gandhi later this week.
Even though Congress is prepared to fight on all six seats, the seat sharing option with NC is also in the pipeline. He said Congress at all-India level had already reached out to all like-minded parties to join hands with them to contest the Lok Sabha polls together. Congress was already in the back channel talks with all the regional parties across the country. Now, after the announcement, talks are going in open with everyone," Mir said. He said, as per the feedback of the silent observers of Congress and NC in the state, "the seat sharing option seems more feasible for both the parties than going solo. The final seat sharing agreement may be made at a meeting between the NC President, Dr Farooq Abdullah, and the Congress Chief, Rahul Gandhi
The state Congress President, Mir, would travel to New Delhi to discuss the modalities before announcing the final decision on seat sharing. Right now, the party high command is in Ahmedabad. They will be back in New Delhi. The final decision is likely to be made either on Friday or Saturday," he said. Jammu Kashmir has six Lok Sabha seats, three - Baramulla, Srinagar and Anantnag - in Kashmir, two - Jammu-Poonch and Udhampur-Doda - in Jammu, and one in Ladakh. NC General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar said NC was ready for talks on seat-sharing option if Congress approaches them.
"We are preparing to fight on all six seats, but in case there is seat sharing with Congress, NC will at least fight on four seats leaving two for the Congress to test its winning power. It indicates that PDP may have to go alone in the valley and there are indications that the PDP may contest all the six seats.
Once the alliance between the Congress and the NC may fructify the Congress may get three seats from the valley and one seat from Ladakh. The state unit of the Congress may contest two from the region of Jammu. If this is not ac ceptable to NC the Congress may get one seat from the valley and one from the region of Jammu. Since there are no regional parties in the state hence Congress may have to bargain with the NC because joining hands with the PDP may harm the NC because of the PDP having shared power with the BJP.
