The J&K Administration revoked the Public Safety Act and detention of Former J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, clearing the way for regional mainstream parties to meet, discuss and formulate the steps to water their dried up political roots in Kashmir. The get together of Abdullahs, Muftis and other regional parties was seen as a desperate measure by the rightists and voiced that these parties plan bigger disasters for the UT.
The formation of ‘People’s Alliance of Gupkar Declaration’ to fight for restoration of full statehood and special status of Jammu and Kashmir was a move like no other, as the arch rivals and other 3 main regional parties stood together. Their high claims mocked by the right-wingers but in the valley have reached to every household and has brought them back onto the valleys big political screen.
Displaying their formal structure of People’s Alliance of Gupkar Declaration assured the confidence towards their promises. Mehbooba Mufti’s controversial National flag statement was a calculated move to add more authenticity to their claims of restoring statehood as well as special status of J&K, though was responded heavily by J&K BJP members. Even though the alliance of regional parties could have a far better reach, but to write off BJP at a stage, where their political movement is apparently vibrant in the valley, would not be so wise.
