Srinagar, Oct 19: The newly formed People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration has strongly condemned the summoning of Dr Farooq Abdullah by Enforcement Directorate (ED).
In a statement, the alliance termed it as a part of vindictive politics practiced by the Central Government to kill dissent and disagreement across the Country and in present case to silence the genuine demand for reversal of unilateral and unconstitutional decisions of 5th August 2019 and restoration of 4th August 2019.
“The Alliance has reminded the Central Government that such tactics are not to dampen the will of People of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh to have the Constitutional status realised.”
It said that the Central Government unnerved by the unity amongst the people across all the regions and communities to pursue the goals of Gupkar Declaration and support extended to it by political parties and civil society groups at the national level was resorting to a game of “witch-hunt and suppression.”
It urged upon the Government of India (GOI) to realise the dangers in this process of “witch-hunting and intidimation and desist from such vindictive designs.”
“Dialogue with all stakeholders remains the only option to address the deepening uncertainty in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.”
