Return of Political Normalcy?

June 15, 2021 |

After giving them a cold shoulder for many months, the central government led by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi seems to be inclined to restore the political normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir. According to reports, the prime minister’s office has opened channels of communication with the mainstream parties in Kashmir who have been on a war-path against the central government following the abrogation of the article 370 of the Indian constitution on August 5, 2019. Most of them were put under house arrest while some of them were shifted to makeshift jails and released only after the tensions post August 2019 decision had eased out. After their release, the leaders of these parties had come together to form the Gupkar alliance whose ultimate aim is to restore the political status of Jammu and Kashmir in the union of India before the August 2019 decision. However, cracks started to appear in the alliance ahead of the conduct of the District Development Council elections with Dr Farooq, who was elected as the head of the alliance, facing accusations of grabbing lion’s share of the DDC seats by putting up his party candidates to contest on maximum number of seats. The episode also ended with the exit of Peoples Conference chief Sajad Lone from the alliance in December who trained guns at the National Conference founder for “betraying the trust” of people of J&K. The alliance was almost written off the political arena of Jammu and Kashmir until last week when the constituent parties met at the residence of PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti. After the meeting, Dr Farooq said that the door of the alliance is open for the central government to hold talks. The PDP chief said that the alliance will pursue the restoration of the Article 370 through legal process in the court of law. The change of mind in the Gupkar alliance is welcome indeed. The central government has also thrown enough hints to suggest that something was cooking for restoration of the political processes in Jammu and Kashmir. According to reports, the National Conference is likely to participate in the proceedings of the Delimitation Commission which the party had boycotted so far. After the commission finalizes its report, the election commission is likely to announce dates for holding assembly elections in J&K, likely by year-end or early next year. The elected assembly will then take up the restoration of statehood for J&K and other issues which have kept J&K on boil. This will bring complete normalcy to J&K.
