Gupkar Agreement

After the release of Mehbooba Mufti, a meeting was held on Wednesday and then on Thursday. The Union`s trade union political parties have reached an agreement called the Gupkar Agreement. During the meeting and the secret discussion, all parties decided to create a common organization. In a similar development earlier in the day, according to the sources, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, a founding member of the PDP, left the party after the disagreement over the distribution of seats for the SDC elections. Protest against Farooq AbdullahIn contrast, images against the MP, Dr. Farooq Abdullah, were burned on Thursday in several places for a statement on Section 370. Meanwhile, hindu Jagran general secretary Arun Khajuria said Farooq Abdullah`s idea of resolving Section 370 with China`s help was irresponsible. For decades in Kashmir, pro-Indian parties have used Article 370 protection and calls for more autonomy as a political platform to win votes. With the disappearance of the special status, this board also disappeared.

The Heads of State and Government point out that with Gupkar`s statements, the old political fault lines seem to have collapsed in Kashmir. „We must recognise that this is the first time that Kashmir`s leaders have spoken to each other and not against each other in the past,” said a leader of the Srinagar-based People`s Democratic Party. This may be because the signatories have not shown a roadmap for the „struggle” they have promised this month since the declaration. Omar Abdullah clarified his position in subsequent interviews, but the damage was already done. Soon after, his own party`s chief spokesman, Aga Ruhullah Mehdi, resigned citing his differences. If Abdullah`s testimony – or the interpretations that have emerged – disappoints people, Shah Faesal`s exit and the long silence that the liberated mainstream leaders had accepted were as much as rubbing salt into the already crushed expectations of the masses. .
