A new party will soon come into existence in Jammu and Kashmir amid the house arrest of National Conference (NC) chief Farooq Abdullah, former Chief Ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti and political activities in the Valley. The new party will include the former MLA and former minister, angered by the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and NC.

The new party is believed to be the result of the exercise of the formation of the Third Front under the leadership of former minister Altaf Bukhari. The party is ready to marginalize NC and PDP. The name of the party will be 'Apni Party'. If all goes well, the new team may be announced next month. Restoring statehood to Jammu and Kashmir, job and land security of local people and unemployment, etc. will be the main agenda of the party. After the party's announcement, its leaders can also meet PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi.

Leaders involved in forming the new party said that the party's constitution committee will submit its report around February 24-25. After this report, the party can be announced at any time. At present, the names of its officials have not been decided. It is being said that the new party will work collectively in the initial phase. Officers will be elected if required. Apart from the leaders of Kashmir, the party will also include the leaders of Jammu division. It will have 60 percent old and 30 percent new faces. Bureaucrats, businessmen, youth, journalists will also be part of this party.

Beg can also be a part sources said that former MP Muzaffar Hussain Baig may also be a part of the party. If that happens, it would be another major setback for the PDP, as Baig is a founding member of the PDP. Last month, he told a public forum that the provocative statement given by Mehbooba Mufti regarding Articles 370 and 35A is also a major reason for its removal.

Discussion in political corridors There is a discussion in the political corridors about the formation of a new party that the center and BJP are behind this. At the behest of the Center, a new party is being formed to marginalize the NC and PDP in the valley. For this, the leaders who left the PDP have been further taxed.

The name of the new party has been decided. The report of the constitution committee is awaited. The new party will be announced soon. After 1947, issues like security of jobs and land and grant of full statehood are the same for both Jammu and Kashmir division. This is an opportunity to connect the people of both the divisions. This will also be the agenda of the party.
