Senior Peoples Democratic Party leader Muzaffar Hussain Baig has made it clear that he will leave the party in case the third front emerges in Jammu and Kashmir and that Sajad Lone was like his son and People’s conference a home.
Baig who is also the co-founder of PDP said if the third front emerges which is also what the Peoples Conference-led by Sajad Lone is aiming at, he will join it.
Addressing a press conference today, Baig while speaking said that although he had not decided to resign from PDP, until he gets an answer from the party to his queries but said there is a possibility of forming a grand alliance. “I will seriously consider of joining the third front and joining People’s Conference will be my homecoming,” Beigh said.
“Peoples Conference is like home to me and Sajad Lone is like a son. If Sajad is interested in the third front, he should be encouraged.”
Kashmir needs independent journalism…
…now, more than ever to give a voice to the voiceless. The press in Kashmir has operated under tremendous pressures of reporting from a conflict zone but since August 2019 we find ourselves in unchartered territory. The Kashmir Walla is among the oldest independent media outlets in Kashmir and has withstood successive lockdowns as well as attempts to suppress us, fighting back with authoritative ground reports based on facts.
We believe in making the powers that be accountable to their actions but to also hold the mirror to the society. We believe in covering all sides of the story and that empowerment in essence means the ability to make informed decisions. As such we have not allowed our journalism to be influenced by the pressures.
Despite the new and still unknown pressures, we are all the more committed to keep informing you of events and stories that matter. Our recent coverage of events has brought us an increased readership. However, the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic crisis has affected our operational capabilities. We are facing an existential threat but only your support can help us withstand this and maintain our editorial independence.
