Dialogue in democracy is the only way to move forward and People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) in a right move has decided to attend the meeting called by the Prime Minister regarding Jammu and Kashmir on June 24.
Mehbooba has told the media that restoration of statehood is the promise made by the Prime Minister himself and it would not be any favor for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. She told the media that the Gupkar Alliance has been formed for the restoration of what was taken away from us on August 5, 2019.
Mehbooba said that they cannot compromise on their stand regarding the article 370 and 35A and their stand is known to New Delhi and to the Prime Minister of the country.
In August 2019, the Centre ended the special status to Jammu and Kashmir and divided the state into two Union Territories Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
The Centre is expected to discuss assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir, as there is no elected government and the UT of Jammu and Kashmir is under the central rule from the past three years.
Local body polls in Jammu and Kashmir were held in December; the Gupkar Alliance won more than 100 seats and the BJP emerged as the single largest party with 74 seats, though the central government is now trying for the assembly elections so that an elected government is formed by the people with their votes.
