Is Kashmir reading itself to a "summer of discontent" ?
By Rigzin Jora By their own admission the PDP and the BJP are poles apart in their ideologies. Parties win mandate on the basis of their manifestos which are broadly in tune with their ideology . It was , therefore, surprising when the PDP - BJP alliance was projected as as alliance of " conviction " rather than convenience . There is nothing wrong in alliance of convenience. Atal Bihari Vajpayee led an alliance of 24 or more parties with no common ideological underpinnings. So also V P Singh, who took immense pride in managing contradictions . Mufti Sayeed who serve...

Better watch wolf and all Singhs of BJP-- warns Jora

The common man on the streets of Srinagar are aghast that the Modi party , that Mufti Sayeed so vigorously campaigned against , and sought people's mandate to stop from making entry into valley , is today piggybacked by Mufti Sayeed into the secretariat . The irony is not lost on the common man , although politici...
