Mehbooba unhappy with NC?

Former leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party Basharat Bukhari and Peer Muhammad Hussain joining National Conference has not gone well with the PDP leadership.
Soon after both these leaders joined the NC, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and the PDP president Mehbooba Mufti took to the Twitter to express her displeasure over NC absorbing both the leaders in its party fold.
Mehbooba did not react when Imran Ansari, Yasir Reshi and others joined the Peoples Conference led by Sajad Lone as she considered Sajad as her opponent. But it seems she was hurt by NC’s decision to entertain two PDP rebels.
Political developments which took place during the past few months had brought NC and PDP closer to each other. It looked like that they are fighting a common enemy. NC offering support to PDP to form the government in the state had taken everyone by a surprise, even the BJP and its ally Peoples Conference. NC and PDP coming together had indicated that both these parties have buried their hatchet and they want to take on the BJP jointly and upset its plan of ruling Jammu and Kashmir again.
Still speculations are rife that NC and PDP would enter into a secret pact before the Assembly elections in the state to keep the BJP and Sajad Gani Lone led Peoples Conference at bay. But Bukhari and Hussain joining NC seem to have pushed the PDP on back foot and it looks like that the party won’t make any more efforts to come close to National Conference at least till the elections are held. May be parties can think about coming together after Assembly polls but for time being they would contest the elections against each other. One has to wait and see what would be the slogans which these parties would raise to woo the voters.
