The Union Home Minister Amit Shah attacked the Kashmiri leaders and called them ‘secret gangs’. In fact, almost all the political parties of Kashmir have formed the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD).
Its main objective is the restoration of Articles 370 and 35A in Kashmir.
On 5 August last year, the government of Narendra Modi abolished the status of a special state which was given to Kashmir under Articles 370 and 35A of the Indian Constitution.
Almost all the state leaders, including three former chief ministers, were either arrested or put under house arrest.
But after the release, all the parties have formed PAGD together.
Amit Shah is targeting these leaders.
Amit Shah tweeted and wrote, “Gupkar gang is going global. Those people want foreign powers to intervene in Jammu and Kashmir. Gupkar gang insults Indian tricolor too. Are Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi this gang of Gupkar gang Support the move? They should make their position clear to the people of India. “
Congress and the Gupkar Gang want to take J&K back to the era of terror and turmoil. They want to take away rights of Dalits, women and tribals that we have ensured by removing Article 370. This is why they’re being rejected by the people everywhere,” Amit Shah also said, adding that the “Gupkar Gang” needs to swim “along with the national mood or else the people will sink it”.
Congress has announced to contest the District Development Council together with the Gupkar alliance. BJP has strongly attacked this decision of Congress.
BJP says that those who spew venom against India and become sympathizers of Pakistan. Now the Congress party has also joined the gang of people, who once again have a nefarious plan to implement Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir
One reason for Amit Shah’s attack at this time could also be that local body elections are due in Jammu and Kashmir from November 28.
In this election of District Development Council (DDC), except for BJP and J&K Apna Party (JKAP), all political parties involved in PAGD have decided to contest elections together.
Only Altaf Bukhari’s Jammu and Kashmir has its own party (JKAP) with the BJP which is not part of the secret declaration.
Altaf Bukhari is considered a supporter of the BJP.
