PC’s Pull Out: For Convenience Or Conscience

Sajad Gani Lone, the Chairman Peoples’ Conference himself a violator of coalition benchmarks twice in last two decades is shockingly blaming others for deserting him and his party yet again. Himself responsible for fielding proxy candidates in 2002 assembly elections Sajad Lone is still remembered for accusing none else than the top octogenarian separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani of lying to people by holding holy Quran in his hand and swear by it but ultimately he proved himself a liar by virtue of his actions as he in a himalyan climb-down divorced his own father’s separatist political ideology only to switch over from separatist to mainstream politics just for his own political conveniences few years later . Perhaps Sajad Lone is the first politician who has the qualification of inheriting political legacy of his father late Ab Gani Lone just for his own political conveniences  but shockingly divorcing his political ideology also for the causes of his own political conveniences. A man divorcing political ideology of his own father late Ab Gani Lone but carrying out his legacy for his own political conveniences should not have been allowed to be part of “Peoples’ Alliance For Gupkar Declaration (PAGD)” and Farooq Abdullah as head of the multi party alliance-PAGD owes an explanation to the people of Jammu & Kashmir for allowing Sajad Lone to be part of the alliance despite demonstration of his ideological inconsistency twice in his political career so for.

Since only an investigation of the proxy candidate issue and action against the guilty by the top leaders of the constituent parties was the only way out, the Peoples’ Conference Chairman announcing pull out of his party from PAGD only after reports about the meeting of a PAGD leader with Union Home Minister went viral on social media is an indefensible defence. Ultimately it is a battle between the political deserters and conscience keepers in the fastly changing political scenario of Jammu & Kashmir since downgraded from a state to a union territory almost 18 months back.

Interestingly not only Sajad Lone himself but majority of the top office bearers of his party too have a history of political defections. While blaming the PAGD allies of creating trust deficit by fielding proxy candidates in DDC elections, the Peoples Conference Chairman does not explain that whether or not only other allies including National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had fielded proxy candidates and only Peoples Conference was an exception.
