SRINAGAR: President Awami Ittihaad Party (AIP) and MLA Langate Er. Rashid has said that PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Syeeds revelation that Congress is a natural allies of PDP is nothing new but an authentication of the stand of those who claim that PDP is an extension wing of Congress.
By calling Congress as its natural allies Mufti Sahib has just endorsed the stand that PDP has been created by New Delhi just to find an alternate route for Congress to rule the state, as Kashmiris have always kept a reasonable distance from the national level parties because of the fact that these parties especially Congress are responsible for creating the dispute called Jammu and Kashmir. None other than Mufti Sahib knows better that how difficult it is to persuade Kashmiris to propagate the ideology of Congress in J&K as he himself has never been elected by the Kashmiri people whenever he or any of his colleagues contested on Congress ticket.
Now when elections are near and PDP like NC feels that it has miserably and completely failed to address the regional aspirations of Kashmiri people, out of frustration the party is itself revealing the bitter truth that PDP is natural allies of Congress, which otherwise it would have never made public.
