Opposition spreading falsehood, provoking people and fueling riots: ShahNew Delhi, Nov 17 (IANS) Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday launched a scathing attack at the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration, saying “either the Gupkar Gang swims along with the national mood or else the people will sink it”.

Shah also asserted that Jammu and Kashmir will always remain an integral part of India, accusing the Gupkar gang of its support to foreign forces for their intervention in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Gupkar gang is an amalgamation of mainstream political parties of J&K .

In a series of tweets, the Home Minister said that the Gupkar Gang is going global but they insult India’s Tricolour.

“Do Sonia Ji and Rahul Ji support such moves of the Gupkar Gang? They should make their stand crystal clear to the people of India,” Amit Shah questioned.

The Home Minister also hit out at the Congress, saying the party and the Gupkar Gang want to take “J&K back to the era of terror and turmoil”.

“They want to take away rights of Dalits, women and tribals that we have ensured by removing Article 370. This is why they’re being rejected by the people everywhere.”

The Home Minister made it clear that “Jammu and Kashmir has been, is and will always remain an integral part of India”.

“Indian people will no longer tolerate an unholy ‘global gathbandhan’ against our national interests. Either the Gupkar Gang swims along with the national mood or else the people will sink it.”

Home Minister’s remarks came a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party, in the run-up to the first-ever District Development Council (DDC) polls in Jammu and Kashmir, termed the stance of the parties of the Gupkar alliance on Article 370 and the Tricolour “anti-national” and demanded that the Congress clarify if it supported these parties or not.

People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration, formerly known as Gupkar Declaration, is a political alliance between the multiple mainstream regional political parties of Jammu and Kashmir aimed to restore special status along with Article 35A of the erstwhile state Jammu and Kashmir.

It was originally formed as Gupkar Declaration, a ‘historical’ political movement by the major political parties such as the National Conference, Congress, Peoples Democratic Party, Communist Party of India (M), Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference and Awami National Conference on August 4 2019, a day before 370 was revoked by Parliament on August 5, 2019.
