Continuing his slamming of the People’s Democratic Party, Imran Ansari, party’s prominent leader today said that split of the PDP has nothing to do with the political system.

The statement came in response to senior party leader, Naeem Akhtar, who had earlier said, “These are unusual times not just for PDP but for political system.”

Akhtar was referring to the apprehensions that the PDP is splitting into two with many leaders, prominently Ansari, openly criticizing the policies of the party president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.

Ansari had also called Akhtar “new definition of irony” for not being elected and still being eager for fresh elections.

For over a week, the perception in the political arena of Jammu and Kashmir is that the PDP is splitting into two groups, with the new breakaway faction likely to join the BJP to form a new government.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
