PDP Cancels Jammu faction’s Meeting; Tensions escalate

Jammu, January 29: According to the reports published in a national daily, the Peoples Democratic Party leader Mehbooba Mufti’s much awaited meeting with the party leaders from Jammu which was scheduled for 3rd of February has been cancelled and now she will hold a one on one interaction.

Mehbooba is set to interact with the senior party leaders from Jammu Province during her three-day stay here from Feb 02. The interaction will be deliberated upon the  present political scenario of the state.

According to the insiders of People Democratic Party, Mehbooba will seek the opinion of senior leaders regarding the performance of the PDP-BJP coalition government during its 10 months of governance.

The sources also said that it was decided earlier that a meeting of senior party workers, candidates who had contested the 2014 Assembly elections and zonal presidents will be chaired by Mehbooba Mufti on Feb 03. There were going to be discussions over the latest developments in the state and their feedback over the government formation in the state. But now, the president of PDP has decided to meet only ‘some’ senior leaders of Jammu province.

Also, only those leaders who have been associated with the PDP since its formation will be considered for discussions and Mehbooba’s brother Tassaduq is also likely to visit Jammu to hold an interaction with local leaders.

The sources further said that the venue of the meeting will be other than Chief Minister’s residence on the Wazarat Road as the state is under Governor’s rule.
