Kashmir parties to give formal shape to People’s Alliance for Gupkar declaration, Farooq Abdullah may lead group

Ahead of the constitutional battle to restore article the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, the leaders of seven party People’s Alliance for Gupkar declaration is all set to make it official on papers.

People’s Alliance for Gupkar declaration will likely have an executive council consisting of the chairperson, a vice-chairperson, a chief coordinator, a chief spokesperson, general secretaries, spokesperson from individual parties and an office-bearer from each party.

Reports said it is the broad consensus of all party leaders that National Conference president and Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Farooq Abdullah should head the core group of alliance. People’s Conference leader Sajad Lone and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti should have important roles. Vice President of the National Conference Omar Abdullah will likely be part of the alliance.

The seven party leaders decided to forge an alliance to regain the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. A meeting was conducted at Farooq Abdullah’s house on October 14 in connection with the alliance which was attended by PDP president Mehbooba Mufti, Peoples Movement leader Javaid Mir, Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Lone, Awami National Conference vice-president Muzaffar Shah and Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Lone. The meeting took place a day after Mehbooba Mufti was released from 14 months detention.
