Omar, Mehbooba further widening gulf between regions

Early Times Report
Jammu, Apr 25: Inter-regional relations between Jammu and Kashmir and between Ladakh and the Valley were never cordial. Thanks to the politics of separatism being indulged in by Kashmiri leaders. That was the reason that the people in Ladakh and Jammu raised from time to time demands ranging from Union Territory status to full-fledged statehood. And it started happening in November 1947 itself, just a few days after the accession of the state to India.
In Ladakh, the Head Lama Koshuk Bakula demanded separation of the trans-Himalayan region from Kashmir and sought its merger with Jammu province or Himachal Pradesh. In Jammu, Prof Balraj Madhok and other Jan Sangh leaders demanded separation of the region from Kashmir. Jammu remained at the helm between March 1846 and October 1947. The view in both Jammu and Ladakh was that the aspirations of the people of these two regions and the people of Kashmir, barring the Hindus, were contradictory and mutually exclusive.
It was hoped that the Valley leadership would appreciate the ground realities as they existed in the state's three distinct regions - Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh - and behave in a manner which united the people and not divided. However, it was not to be. This is what a peep into the history of J&K post-1947 clearly suggests. Still, however, things were never so bad in the state as they have been since June 2018, when the BJP dethroned Mehbooba Mufti and the state came under the Central rule.
NC leaders Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti have been leaving no stone unturned to queer the Indian pitch in Kashmir in their desperate bid to regain the ground they lost over the period because of their "anti-people policies and their politics of power and pelf". The hope that they would abandon their "negative politics" and help create an environment leading to harmonization of inter-regional and inter-communal relations has dashed to the ground. The statements Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti have been making to arouse popular passions in Kashmir to win the three Lok Sabha seats from the Valley have only further widened the gulf between the regions.
That the gulf between Jammu and Kashmir and between the Valley and Ladakh instead of being bridged has been further widened could be seen from the fact that while the NC could not find a single candidate to contest election from any of the three Lok Sabha constituencies in 2014 and 2019, the PDP couldn't field any candidate both in Jammu and Ladakh in 2019. On the other hand, the BJP is contesting all the 6 Lok Sabha seats - 2 in Jammu, 3 in Kashmir and one in Ladakh - and the Congress contesting elections from 5 Lok Sabha constituencies, two each in Jammu and the Valley and one in Ladakh.
