"Gupkar Gang" or an opportunistic diatribe: A look at this developmentThe term 'Gupkar Gang' was recently coined by a top politician of the country against the amalgam of seven mainstream political groups of Jammu and Kashmir who formally structured PAGD (People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration) with Farooq Abdullah, JKNC's president as the President of the amalgam.
This JKPAGD has been in the news for some time and people discussing this new political structure of Jammu and Kashmir. As the dates for small DDC polls process in JK have been announced, politicians have started blaming and lambasting each other for anything. The tweet coining a valid political entity as "Gupkar Gang" and anti-nationals in JK by a top politician is the most unfortunate. This 'Gang' term by a top politician seems unfair and should have been avoided. BJP itself is an ally to JKNC in LAHDC Ladakh which puts a question mark on the gang statement. If PGDA is a gang party, BJP is part of it.
Coining the "Gupkar Gang" term seems an opportunistic diatribe to unstable this amalgam. PAGD has been declared a legitimate entity by the election commission so, why this much of hate? Can we expect a more mature statement from our politicians?
