Mohammad Yousaf Tarigami is the lone CPI (M) MLA in the state. He stands for greater autonomy for Jammu and Kashmir and is a Farooq Abdullah critic. He has the ability to draw crowds in Jammu and Kashmir as he is largely seen as a fighter for the people’s cause. Recently Tarigami has also denounced the Indus Waters Treaty and demanded revoking the treaty which has been causing the state a loss of Rs. 65 billion annually. Recently, Tarigami also affirmed that talks are on for forging a broad-based alliance against Farooq Abdullah, besides Saifuddin Soz and Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. Feelers have also been sent to Shabir Shah and the APHC.
