JAMMU: While National Conference getting yet another shot in its arm after the joining of a prominent Jammu based leader in its fold , J&K Apni Party continues to grapple with dissent and internal crisis, as the cadre openly revolted against the leadership on Thursday, seeking removal of the Provincial President Manjeet Singh.Highly demoralized and dejected over quitting of its Jammu Youth Wing President Gaurav Kapoor and his subsequent joining into the arch rival National Conference, the volatile workers of the Apni Party created ruckus at its Gandhi Nagar headquarters here by raising slogans “Manjeet Hatayoo Party Bachaoo.”The workers were upset and disillusioned with the desertion of Gaurav Kapoor, who was profusely greeting by National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah and Vice President Omar Abdullah on his joining into the party at Srinagar.Other senior leaders General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani, Provincial President YNC (Jammu) Ajaz Jan, Tanvir Sadiq, Imran Nabi Dar and Ahsan Pardesi also wished ‘very best’ to Gourav Kapoor.Created with much fanfare on March 8, 2020, the ‘jumbo ship’ of the Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party began sinking under its own weight when the party leaders kept quitting. The cracks deepened and became visible with the ‘State’ Coordinators of Displaced Kashmiri Pandits of the Jammu Division and the Kashmir Valley resigning from their posts weeks ago. The noise of cracks is being heard across the Union Territory. AP’s Kulgam Block President Sameer Ahmad Khan also resigned from the party, saying that now he has nothing to do with it. While quitting their top slots, the two KP Coordinators, inter-allia, stated that they were being harassed on one pretext or the other, obviously for raising the issues of their hounded out community. They also took moral grandstanding of preserving their self-respect as their voiced were being choked. What does the harassment and self-respect indicate in a political party that came of the scene in Jammu and Kashmir with the plank of forming the next government?The successive desertions has put a big question mark over the well meaning initiative of the former finance minister and founder of the Apni Party Altaf Bukhari, who may not be in a position to take on the traditional political parties, especially as the elections are nearing. The hard toil of over one and a half year is going down to drain unless course correction takes place-sooner the better. Any further delay will witness leaders at all the levels deserting Apni Party, which must be a disgusting situation for its founder.
