‘Gupkar Gang Going Global’: Amit Shah Criticizes ‘Unholy Gathbandhan’ of Political Parties at J&K | India News


NEW DELHI: Union Interior Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday criticized the Gupkar Alliance, a coalition of J&K political parties, calling it an “unholy gathbandhan” against the national interest.
Shah accused the political parties of seeking the intervention of foreign forces in J&K and disrespecting the Indian tricolor.

In a series of tweets, the interior minister said that Jammu and Kashmir will always be an integral part of India and warned the People’s Alliance Declaration for Gupkar to “go against the national interest.”
“The Indian people will no longer tolerate an unholy ‘global gathbandhan’ against our national interest. Either the Gupkar Gang swims with the national mood or people will sink it,” he tweeted.
In August this year, on the first anniversary of the repeal of Article 370, the main regional political parties of Jammu and Kashmir came together to “safeguard and restore a special status along with Article 35A of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Shah also targeted the Congress party for forging an alliance with the Gupkar Alliance, accusing it of siding with entities that want to bring J&K back into the age of terror and confusion.
“Congress and the Gupkar Gang want to bring J&K back into the age of terror and unrest. They want to take away the rights of Dalits, women and tribes that we have secured by removing Article 370. That is why they are being Shunned by people everywhere, “he tweeted.
On Monday, Union Minister Jitendra Singh asked Congress and the National Conference (NC) to explain to the people of the Jammu region whether they supported the Gupkar resolution to restore Article 370 of the Constitution in Jammu and Kashmir. .
He said the People’s Alliance for the Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) will spell doom for Congress not just in Jammu and Kashmir, but across the country.
