Srinagar: Peoples Conference chief Sajjad Lone on Thursday held a massive rally in Kupwara district amid speculation of him emerging as a key player in the formation of a “third front”.
PDP dissenter Yasir Reshi was also present at the rally lending further credence to the speculation.
Seven PDP legislators have openly denounced Mehbooba Mufti for promoting nepotism in the party. The dissenters led by influential Shia leader Imran Ansari have declared that they have no faith in Mehbooba’s leadership.
The open rebellion of PDP legislators and Sajjad Lone’s meeting with BJP’s Kashmir handler Ram Madhav have led to speculations of a new alliance with the BJP to form the government in Jammu & Kashmir.
