Well begun in J&K

With the swearing in of the Mufti Mohammed Sayeed government in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday, the state has turned a new leaf.
The hope for the state does not come from any change in the character of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party: both parties remain wedded to their outlook.
But risk-taking does curious things. The two parties have taken immense risks in forming a government after a bitter electoral campaign. If the coalition government does not perform, the results will be perilous. The PDP will not only face the ire of its support base in Kashmir valley, but will possibly be subject to violence by those whose aims have been frustrated by the formation of the coalition government.
This is evident in the PDP’s emphasis on jobs, development and growth in the state. The BJP has always made those noises. Now is the time to deliver those promises to a state tired of political violence.
