A political stir has started in Jammu and Kashmir after 14 months. Mehbooba Mufti and Farooq Abdullah joined hands as soon as released from house arrest. The old feud was forgotten to fight the BJP. Those who abused each other till one and a half years ago, those who used to call each other enemies of Kashmir, yesterday announced that they will fight together. Article 370 will be restored in Jammu and Kashmir. Yeterday Farooq Abdullah had called the leader of all the opposition parties, including Mehboob, for a meeting at his house. The interesting thing is that no Congress leader attended this meeting. Congress was invited, but Congress has taken the middle line in this matter.
Alliance between Mehbooba Mufti and Farooq Abdullah
Although the agenda of the meeting was to discuss the secret declaration two days ago, but Mehbooba reached Farooq’s house on time. The meeting lasted for about one and a half hours. After this, Farooq said that now he will fight together. Will fight for the restoration of Article 370. Farooq Abdullah had said that he would take help of China in getting Article 370 back, but yesterday he did not talk about China. He definitely said that they will fight their battles in a constitutional manner and will fight together.
New alliance includes six parties including NC-PDP
For this, a new alliance has been created in Jammu and Kashmir yesterday. The name of this alliance is People’s Alliance for Secret Declaration. There are a total of six parties in this alliance, including Farooq Abdullah’s party National Conference and Mehbooba Mufti’s party PDP, besides Awami National Conference and CPI. The interesting thing is that Congress is not a part of this alliance. Actually on 4 August last year, Mehbooba Mufti and Farooq Abdullah had a meeting in which a secret declaration was made. In this, Jammu and Kashmir was told not to tolerate special status and tampering with Article 370 at any cost. But the government of Narendra Modi abolished Section 370 on 5 August the very next day. This decision was stamped with Parliament.
Farooq Abdullah’s statement about new alliance
National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah said that we have decided that the name of the secret agreement will be People’s Allaince for Gupkar Declaration. Our objective is to restore the constitutional situation which was there on 5 August last year. Our struggle rests on giving all the rights back to the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh which have been taken away from us and along with it our political issues have not been resolved yet. For that also we want that action should be taken to find a political solution immediately. All those who are involved in this issue should be resolved by talking to them in the issue of Jammu and Kashmir.
‘We will fight for the restoration of article 370’
Farooq Abdullah said that those who are still in captivity, under house arrest, should be released immediately. Actually Farooq Abdullah knows that if you have to fight on the issue of Article 370, it cannot be fought separately. For this, the parties will have to walk together, so Farooq sent Omar Abdullah to his house yesterday after Mehbooba was released. After this, Farooq called Mehbooba for meeting yesterday and said that the Central Government has illegally kept the leaders of Kashmir in jail.
Jammu and Kashmir BJP Chief Ravindra Raina said that those who want to return to terrorism and separatism. They want to set fire to the peace of Kashmir, they have now united and are demanding a return of 370, but no effort will be successful.
