PAGD formed to restore Articles 370 and 35A, says Farooq Abdullah
President of the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday that the alliance will fight for the restoration of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.
His statement came during a video message asking people of Jammu and Kashmir to vote for the alliance candidates in the District Development Council (DDC) council polls .
The PAGD also released the sixth list of its candidates for the District Development Council (DDC) council polls which will be held in eight phases from November 28.
Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah both are in isolation after one of their staff members tested positive for Covid-19.
In a fervent appeal released on the Twitter handle of PAGD and later shared by leaders of other constituents of the alliance, Farooq Abdullah asked people to come out in large numbers and vote during DDC polls.
“The bugle for the election has been sounded and it is my fervent appeal that you should come out in large numbers and vote for the PAGD candidates. The alliance has been formed to defend our identity and get back Articles 370 and 35A that had been snatched from us,” Abdullah said.
He asked people to vote only for the alliance candidates. “Many people who are contesting these polls, falsely claim that they represent alliance while they are enemies of the alliance so people should only vote for alliance candidates.”
