Gupkar reunion held in the courtyard of Farooq Abdullah sets the regain of special status of Jammu and Kashmor as agenda

The members meet in his courtyard

Tuesday, 20th October 2020

This Thursday the National Conference led by Farooq Abdullah hastily arranged a formal meet of seven parties referred to as the ‘People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration’ to battle for the renewal and restoration of the ‘special status’ of Jammu & Kashmir. PDP of Mehbooba Mufti and the Congress too participated in the meet.


The parties that are part of this alliance are also the actual signatories to the declaration of 2019 initiated by the NC at the Gupkar Road house of Farooq to stop the move of the Centre to nullify the Articles 370 as well as 35A of the Indian Constitution.


The non-BJP alliance to steer a campaign for restoring Jammu & Kashmir’s before-August 5-2019 status took its birth within just 48 hours of the releasing of Mehbooba, ex CM, from a 14 months detention by the administration.


Farooq went to the residence of Mehbooba in Srinagar on Wednesday to give her an invitation for Thursday’s meet. He was accompanied ex-CMs and Omar Abdullah, his son.


Ghulam Ahmad Mir, Jammu & Kashmir’s PCC president had missed the meet due to a health related emergency and he was the only person to do so.


Apart from Mehbooba, other eminent political figures like Yousuf Tarigam (CPM State Secretary), Sajjad Lone (J&K People’s Conference), Muzaffar Shah (Awami National Conference representative) and Javed Mustafa Mir (J&K People’s Movement) were part of this meet.


In the context of the Gupkar Meet, Farooq said to the reporters: “We decided to name the resolution as People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration to make it clear what our goal is. Our motive is to fight for the restoration of J&K’s position till August 4, 2019” 


Farooq further said that the campaign was not about Jammu & Kashmir’s erstwhile status only, but also about the “rights that were snatched” from the natives of the vale and from that of Ladakh.“We also want steps to be taken for the resolution of the Kashmir issue with all the stakeholders on board.”
