Chief Minister deserves all the praise for his speech at the National development council meet. While Omer Abdullah laid stress on the political solution to the Kashmir problem at the same time, he smartly presented his case as far as financial needs of J&K are concerned including the transfer of power projects to the state from NHPC control.
Making such statements at such levels are important and carry more weight than making such speeches at local levels. But as the chief Minister is well aware that New Delhi has always resorted to delaying tactics and the discord among political parties goes to the advantage of New Delhi. It is surprising that all parties that are Kashmir centric demand the resolution of this vexed problem but when it comes to presenting the case collectively all parties take different postitions.
What is more amazing is the fact that even pro-freedom parties have difference of opinion and that is why we never saw any serious attempt towards unification of different factions of Hurriyat. Also one may ask that which individual or a party has the mandate to negotiate with New Delhi or Islamabad.
