All the signatories of Gupkar Declaration including PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and NC President Farooq Abdullah have come together to form an alliance to fight for the restoration of special status and statehood of Jammu and Kashmir. In a tweet, former chief minister Omar Abdullah said that “it is an alliance formed by the original signatories to the Gupkar Declaration and has been given a proper name and structure today”. The parties include NC, PDP, CPI(M), PC, JKPM and ANC.

NC President Farooq Abdullah said that the leaders have named this alliance as People’s Alliance for the Gupkar Declaration. “Our battle is a constitutional battle, we want the government of India to return to the people of the State the rights they held before 5th Aug 2019,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.

PDP spokesperson Najmu Saqib said that all the signatories to the Gupkar declaration have given a formal name to the grouping: People’s Alliance. “The alliance will constitutionally fight for the restoration of August 4 position of J&K,” he said in a tweet.

On reports suggesting it an alliance between PDP and NC, Mehbooba Mufti said that the “Gupkar Declaration is an amalgamation of NC, PDP, PC, CPI(M), ANC & JKPM jointly striving to restore the rights and dignity of people of J&K.” “The greatest disservice would be reducing it to PDP/NC or two political families.” she said.
