(G.N.S) Dt. 5
The Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) is a five-party alliance, led by NC president Farooq Abdullah, that insists restoration of Article 370 and statehood to Jammu and Kashmir.
The People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration has said that assembly polls should be held in Jammu and Kashmir only after Centre restores its statehood.
The alliance also expressed disappointment at the outcome of PM Modi’s all-party meeting in New Delhi, citing the absence of any substantial confidence building measures, such as release of political prisoners in Kashmir.
All the leaders of the alliance, including People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti, and its chief spokesperson M Y Tarigami, and NC vice-president Omar Abdullah met in Srinagar for the first time after PM Modi’s June 24 meeting.
