Srinagar, November 07: Member of Parliament and a senior leader of PDP Muzaffar Hussain Baig in an open letter written to Prime Minister Modi on Friday ahead of his rally in Srinagar today said that that people in the Muslim-majority J&K were feeling “insecure” and the general perception is that the only thing PDP-BJP alliance has so far achieved is “further alienation, mistrust and cynicism.”
Baig is not attended the Prime Minister’s rally as reported in a local daily newspaper. Through his letter he made an appeal to both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed to rise to the occasion and send a message of “peace and tolerance”.
Pertinently, Baig and another party MP Tariq Karra have not been attending the party’s meeting after the formation of the government. According to Baig’s open letter to to the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister, “The alliance and government was formed in an atmosphere of a great deal of cynicism prevalent in Kashmir. The ambivalence had its roots in the perceived incompatibility of the BJP and the PDP.”
