Jammu, November 11
Chief Minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti is holding an important meeting of district and zonal presidents of her party here today to make preparations for the future political battles in view of the dent that the ruling party suffered in the past four months.
Mehbooba Mufti, according to sources, is all set to remind the party leaders that the party should take on the opposition propaganda against the government and the party. “ This can be achieved when we are spread all across the places, meet and interact with the people,” sources quoted her telling the party workers.
Today’s meeting is part of series of meetings that she and the party leaders like Sartaj Madni have been holding to re-activate the party that had gone into hibernation following the massive unrest in Kashmir following the killing of Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen commander Burhan Wani in July this year. The people vented their ire against party leaders, ministers and legislators. They attacked and torched their houses. The party cadres were scared. She is trying to lift that thick blanket of fear and bring the party cadre back to the sunlight.
In Jammu, PDP is facing a peculiar problem . Here , the party is not haunted as much by the Kashmir unrest as it has to grapple with the challenges thrown by the ruling ally BJP that has been speaking in different voices on different issue s.
At the time of reporting, the meeting was in progress. The issues on agenda were to consolidate the party and carry the message of dialogue and peace and dialogue with stakeholders across Kashmir for the overall interests of the people of this state battered by violence for the past over quarter of a century.
