Political agitation has been going on in Jammu and Kashmir for the last several days. Various types of rumours are being given a lot of air. In the midst of this stir, Pakistan also issues statements with delusion. The leaders of the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) met on June 9 and provided the issue for discussion to political analysts. The leaders of the ‘Gupkar’ accord are meeting with gunpowder, says Brigadier Anil Gupta (Retd), Jammu and Kashmir’s security and political affairs analyst and BJP spokesperson in Jammu and Kashmir. This alliance has awakened after seven months of deep sleep. Gunpowder is being thrown in social media on the rumors of the partition of Jammu and Kashmir, so that its echo can be heard far and wide. In fact, the ‘National Conference’ involved in the ‘Gupkar’ agreement now wants to make a U-turn. Brigadier Gupta claims that Farooq Abdullah may join the delimitation process sooner or later. Before making its formal announcement, they are doing a mental survey of other ‘Gupkar’ associates.
Abdullah’s statement indicates that the rumors being circulated on social media for several days regarding the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir are not false. The talk of giving statehood to the Jammu region can be true. There are also rumors that Kashmir will be directly controlled by New Delhi. Parts of South Kashmir may be included in the new state of Jammu to end the political significance of them. All these rumors have been discussed openly among all the leaders of the ‘Gupkar’ agreement.
According to Gupta, the motive behind spreading such rumours is to disturb peace in Kashmir. They are unable to digest how two consecutive peaceful summers in the valley were possible. These leaders are not digestible even for their Pakistani colleagues. In fact, in the Gupkar meeting, these leaders themselves are now looking for a way to return to the mainstream. Farooq Abdullah’s party is trying to get involved in the delimitation process that is going to start in Jammu and Kashmir. Although it is not easy for him, but he can make a U-turn. Since he is now also the chairman of the Gupkar pact, he will have to take other coalition members into confidence before making a public announcement.
