Abdullahs’ caught in a political trap

Though National Conference rejected the delimitation panel to convey to the central government it’s unwillingness to join the delimitation panel with reasons and rhymes, but father, son duo President Farooq Abdullah a three time former Chief Minister and son Omar Abdullah and the Vice President also another former Chief Minister exercising total command and control over National Conference don’t muster the courage to throw up a legal challenge to either constitution of delimitation panel and the new domicile law. As Abdullahs’ see a window of opportunity open for reconciliation with the delimitation panel and the new domicile law after recent remark of former intelligence chief A S Dulat over their role in the fast changing political scenario in Jammu & Kashmir, they neither dare to throw up a legal challenge to delimitation panel and the new domicile law nor muster the courage to file even an urgency application for early hearing of the petitions filed by them against Article 370 and Article 35 A abrogation and Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Act 2019. Interestingly Supreme Court has recently heard the cases over restoration of 4 G internet facility in Jammu & Kashmir and detention of several mainstream stream leaders during the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown. Fact remain that even rejection of the delimitation panel for non participation in the delimitation exercise by National Conference is attributed to the critical statement of the party’s senior leader Agha Syed Ruhullah who has snubbed Omar Abdullahs’ political secretary Tanveer Sadiq for favouring NC’s reconciliation with the new political arrangement in Jammu & Kashmir. Since Agha Sayeed Ruhulla commands unchallenged public following in the shia dominated areas of the Budgam and several other key assembly constituencies of North and Central Kashmir district, the Abdullahs’ caught between the Delhi’s political reconciliation mantra and core political sentiment of common Kashmiris were left with no other option but to reject the delimitation panel and convey party’s unwillingness to participate in the proposed delimitation exercise.
To come out of the political trap they are in now, Abdullahs’ have the only inevitable option to follow up the petitions filed against Article 370 and Article 35 A abrogation and Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Act 2019 with an urgency application and fresh legal challenges against domicile law and delimitation panel in the Supreme Court of the country as Abdullahs’s would see National Conference crumbling under the weight of rising public anger brewing up against their nonstop silence.
Critics within and outside National Conference question that why Omar Abdullah visited Delhi for health check up amid COVID-19 intensifying spread and unprecedented hype over inclusion of some key leaders of newly J&K Apni party including it’s President Altaf Bukhari into the proposed advisory council . Omar also owes an explanation to the people in Kashmir for not trying to find a way out to file an urgency application for early hearing of the petitions filed by his party against Article 370 and Article 35 A abrogation and Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Act 2019 during his several days stay in Delhi. Caught between backdoor offer of the Narendra Modi led BJP Government for reconciliation with the new political arrangements in Jammu and Kashmir and the rising public anger against no follow up of the petitions filed against Article 370 and Article 35 A abrogation and Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Act 2019 in the Supreme Court of the country, the Abdullahs’ tend to keep people in chaos and confusion over their responses to the political measures taken by the Modi government against the whims and wishes of the people of Kashmir amid unprecedented spike in COVID-19 pandemic. To come out of the political trap they are in now, Abdullahs’ have the only inevitable option to follow up the petitions filed against Article 370 and Article 35 A abrogation and Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Act 2019 with an urgency application and fresh legal challenges against domicile law and delimitation panel in the Supreme Court of the country as Abdullahs’s would see National Conference crumbling under the weight of rising public anger brewing up against their nonstop silence.
