Amit Shah tweets: Congress and the Gupkar Gang want to take J&K back to the era of terror and turmoil. They want to take away rights of Dalits, women and tribals that we have ensured by removing Article 370. This is why they’re being rejected by the people everywhere.
Home Minister Amit Shah made a scathing attack on the People’s Alliance, an amalgamation of mainstream Jammu and Kashmir political parties, for the Gupkar Declaration, and made it clear that Jammu and Kashmir will always be an integral part of India.
Something similar is additionally seen within the District Development Council (DDC) elections in Jammu and Kashmir. this is often evident with the Gupkar Alliance formed just before the J&K DDC election. this is often the primary election held after Jammu and Kashmir became Union Territory last year. The larger question is, who do the people of Jammu and Kashmir choose, the politics of development, or the article 370 advocaters group, which wants to throw the valley back to the dark decades.
Social media has called this alliance the ‘Gupkar Gang.’ Its opportunism is known as they chose to boycott the panchayat elections. Just imagine, the Panchayati Raj system being the strongest pillar of any democracy, and you rejected it and now want to contest the DDC elections. If the so-called Gupkar Alliance was so anti-370 abrogation that it boycotted the Panchayat election, why is it so wanting to contest the DDC? Even big parties like Congress have supported the key organization.
The changing situation on the bottom , whether it’s about law and order, whether it’s about employment, infrastructure development, etc., Kashmiris are alright conscious of opportunistic parties.
Now talking about 35A, it had been an unconstitutional order, which the Parliament never recognized, but still, the groups are chanting the 35A. The Privilege common found in 35A These leaders, which weren’t for the people, had applied for themselves in order that they might cash in of it. The introspection that was expected after the election defeat in 2014, which didn’t happen.
The Congress party supporting the Gupkar Gang should understand that even former Prime Minister Pandit Nehru realized his mistake when he gave Article 370. He felt that he gave all the powers to Sheikh Abdullah. During that point , the accountability of the leaders wasn’t fixed. This led to corruption. There came a time when Jammu and Kashmir became top places in Transparency International’s rankings surveying corruption. this suggests that corruption was done by those people that ruled Jammu and Kashmir for therefore a few years . Before 370, these people wont to decide where the cash would go or to whom the land would tend .
If you attend any city aside from Srinagar, you’ll see how backward those districts are. Since Jammu and Kashmir’s own revenue wasn’t special, 90 percent of their funding was done by the central government. Where that cash wont to go, it had no accountability, no transparency. Only a get few had ruled here for 70 years.
When Maharaja Hari Singh was expelled from Kashmir, he was succeeded by Maharaja Sheikh Abdullah. His son, Farooq Abdullah, his son Omar Abdullah, was ruled by Mehbooba Mufti’s father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed within the same manner; now, his daughter is additionally leading from the front. within the last 70 years, these leaders got luxury by the central government, which has become a habit. But now, people have come to know how hollow these families have made the valley within the past 70 years.
The upcoming District Development Council elections will certainly win; only those that speak Dogri or Kashmiri; people that speak the language of Pakistan or seek help from China won’t get public support.
