1 min read

A day after the National Conference announced it will go alone in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly elections, party leader and former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah said on Thursday that the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) which he heads won’t stop working.

“The doors of the PAGD will never be shut,” the National Conference President told reporters here. He said the National Conference was a democratic party and it can pass resolutions.

“A democratic party can pass any resolution but the final decision will be taken only after elections are announced,” he said. “One cannot do anything if you don’t have tolerance.”

Fissures in the PAGD — an alliance forged by Kashmir’s parties to fight for the restoration of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir — emerged on Wednesday when the National Conference announced it would contest all the 90 seats in the Assembly elections.

The meeting was chaired by former Chief Minister and party Vice President Omar Abdullah.

The NC alleged that some constituents of the PAGD had made statements and speeches against them which doesn’t contribute to the overall unity of the alliance.
