Political parties in the state (barring the BJP) had met at Farooq Abdullah’s home in Srinagar which is on Gupkar Road.
The People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) will attend the all-party meeting convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for political parties from Jammu and Kashmir on June 24, said alliance chairperson Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday. The decision was taken at the PAGD meeting at Abdullah's residence in Srinagar today.
"Mehbooba Mufti, Md Tarigami and I will attend the all-party meeting called by the Prime Minister. We hope to keep our agenda before the Prime Minister and Home Minister," said Dr. Abdullah.
Also, Muzaffar Shah, a member of the alliance said there can be no compromise on Article 370 and 35A.
Modi is likely to chair a meeting with all political parties from Jammu and Kashmir on June 24 as part of the Centre's initiatives to bolster political processes, including holding assembly elections, in the union territory, officials said. The meeting -- the first such exercise since the Centre announced the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status and its bifurcation into union territories in August 2019 -- is likely to be attended by Union Home Minister Amit Shah and other central leaders.
Earlier, Home Minister Amit Shah had hit out at the alliance and termed it as 'Gupkar Gang'. Shah also said it is an "unholy global gathbandhan" against the country's national interest and questioned Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi whether they support the People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), formed to demand the restoration of Article 370, scrapped last year.
