Mainstream political parties in Kashmir are busy in giving a formal shape for the agenda and for the future course of action in order to resist all the central moves to disempower the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Archrivals of mainstream politics in Kashmir have cobbled together a new political alliance recently at the Gupkar residence of Farooq Abdullah and named it as People’s Alliance for Gupkar declaration. After the meeting, they told the media that whatever has been snatched from the people of Jammu and Kashmir would be taken back from New Delhi and this fight will be priority for them and not any form of elections.
Sensing the ground situation recently the central government has amended the panchayat raj act and have decided to hold District Development Council elections as the elections seem to take a lot of time given the recent political alliance of the parties.
The government of India is watching the situation and recently Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that statehood would be given back to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and would not be a very long time for them to wait for the restoration.
This assurance of Union Home Minister has come at a juncture of time when some mainstream political parties have been demanding only restoration of statehood and development for Jammu and Kashmir. If statehood is restored it would be watched by all the political parties and it may bring some of them on the streets to advocate that people will be having their own legislature to decide about their own laws.
