Srinagar: In Jammu and Kashmir, the flag being used before the removal of Section 370 will be used by alliances formed by all major regional parties. Explain that the purpose of this alliance is to restore the status and powers before the removal of Article 370 of Kashmir. The alliance will be led by former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah and rival Mehbooba Mufti will be his deputy.
“People’s Alliance” – is a coalition of parties from Jammu and Kashmir that signed the Gupkar Declaration last year. The Center had abolished the decades-old special status and Article 370 of Jammu and Kashmir and divided the state into two union territories.
The 83-year-old National Conference leader Abdullah was unanimously appointed as the chairman of the group, while the Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti would be its vice-president. Left-wing leader Mohammad Yusuf Tarigami is the convenor of the coalition, while Sajad Lone of the People’s Conference has been named the spokesman.
Forgetting the bitterness that has been going on for years to form a grand alliance, the leaders met for the first time on Saturday at the residence of Mehbooba Mufti after the formation of the alliance.
After the meeting, Lone told reporters that this coalition will bring a white paper on the governance in Jammu and Kashmir in the last one year, after removing the provisions of Article 370.
He said, “This white paper will not be the texture of words. It will be based on facts and figures to present the reality in front of the people of Jammu and Kashmir …. A perception is being made that only in Jammu and Kashmir there was corruption. ”
The PAGD has decided to hold the next meeting in Jammu after a fortnight and after that there will be a conference in Srinagar on 17 November.
