Is PAGD over?
People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) is facing very difficult times as one of its prominent units Peoples Conference has pulled out of it officially.
Recently Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Gani Lone wrote a letter to the president of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) explaining the grounds for pulling out from the political platform.
Sajad in his letter said, “This alliance needed sacrifice. Every party had to sacrifice on the ground in terms of giving space to fellow allies. No party is willing to cede space, no party is willing to sacrifice. We fought against each other in Kashmir province not against the perpetrators of August 5. And those who perpetrated August 5 and their minions are now vocally gleeful.
Lone said it is difficult for them to stay on and pretend as if nothing has happened. In a long letter to Farooq Abdullah Lone has explained the reasons behind to officially part ways. He has said in the letter, “There has been a breach of trust between partners which we believe is beyond remedy. The majoritarian view in our party is that we should pull out of the alliance in an amicable manner rather than waiting for things to get messier. And I am confirming that we will no longer be a part of the PAGD alliance.
Peoples Conference had made it clear for the people of Kashmir that they will commit to the larger goal of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) for the restoration of article 370 and not being the part of it will not force them to go opposite.
