What is J&K’s ‘Alliance for Gupkar Declaration’

Peoples’ Alliance is a coalition of regional political parties in Jammu and Kashmir. The alliance came into existence one year after the abrogation of the special status of the Jammu and Kashmir.

The alliance has been formally named ‘Alliance for Gupkar Declaration’.

The alliance came into existence at a meeting held at the residence of National Conference president Farooq Abdullah. The meeting was attended by Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Lone, Peoples Movement leader Javaid Mir, CPIM leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti who was released a day before from detention.

Mufti was detained along with several other political leaders in August last year following the removal of the state’s special status.

The main objective of the alliance is to restore the constitutional position in respect of Jammu and Kashmir as it existed before August 5 last year.

The alliance, Abdullah said, would also strive for a dialogue between all stakeholders for resolution of the issue pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir.
