Jammu, December 17

Mehbooba Mufti who has repeatedly been threatening to  quit if she failed to deliver on her late father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s vision is finding herself at a dead-end  and may finally show her back to the chair of Chief Minister.

Compressed by the volatile political situation  and non-cooperation of the Centre combined with the occasional high-pitched  fissures with the alliance partner  BJP, Mehbooba Mufti finds that her  record as Chief Minister is dismal. Continuing in the chair without delivering to  her people  and core constituency of Kashmiri Muslims , it would be better to step down as a  martyr to cause of Kashmir  rather than to allow herself to be consumed fully.

At a stage where she finds that her writ and push for getting things done  is being stonewalled by Delhi and  Delhi’s proxies , the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir,  and raising of  secessionist overtones  by  National Conference leadership, Mehbooba  is trying to take a call on her and PDP’s political future . This call, as she has suggested to her confidants and to a section of media, would be  to step down .

Mehbooba, the sources said, has discovered that the whole of her party’s agenda  of healing touch, self-rule  and revocation of  “ black laws” like Armed Forces Special Powers  Act ( AFSPA) and Disturbed Areas Act. She also is finding it difficult to  get the army move out of the  critical places needed for public utilities . Her changing discourse has not helped her much.

It is reliably learnt that she would take a last chance  during the budget session of the state legislature commencing here  from January 2 . That would determine her next step to stay put  are step down  to retrieve  her political constituency whatever is left of it.
