When it comes to past accords of Kashmir’s political leaders with Delhi’s representatives, the perception factor is not very encouraging. Exactly 40 years ago Kashmiri leader Shiekh Muhammad Abdullah and Indira Gandhi had set out to do something similar. To most of the Kashmiris that agreement did little except for taking away whatever residual political autonomy the state had been left with.
In 1953, in somewhat similar circumstances, a Srinagar-New Delhi handshake eventually resulted in the bulldozing of numerous central laws to J&K state. It also lost the nomenclature of ‘Prime Minister’ and ‘Sadr-e-Riyasat’ to that of Chief Minister and Governor. That was the time when New Delhi jailed Sheikh Abdullah and the Congress sought to undermine the former with Mir Sadiq-led Democratic National Conference. Will history repeat itself?
