Srinagar (NVI): The meeting of “People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration” has started at PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti’s Gupkar residence in Srinagar and is aimed at evolving future strategy as to how the “fight for seeking Article 370 and pre August 19, 2019 position can be taken forward.”

The meeting is taking place a day after PDP chief said she will not hold the tri colour flag in her hands till the flag of erstwhile state of J&K is restored.

The top leaders who are participating in the meeting include Dr Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti, Sajad Gani Lone, M Y Tarigami, Omar Abdullah and Ravinder Rana.

Sources said that the conglomerate is likely to announce its chairman, vice-chairman, general secretary and others.

“Farooq Abdullah is likely to be announced as head of the group while PDP President Mehbooba Mufti and People’s Conference chairman Sajad Gani would be given important positions,” they said.

It is worthwhile to mention here that BJP and Apni Party are opposing Gupkar declaration.
