People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said that the purpose of the grand alliance (PAGD) was not for petty electoral gains and that it exists for a much larger cause and purpose—“to restore the J-K’s special status.”
“Amidst all the unnecessary speculation about PAGD, I’d like make a few things absolutely clear. The purpose of this grand alliance is not for petty electoral gains. It exists for a much larger cause & purpose i.e to restore J&Ks special status,” Mehbooba wrote on her Twitter handle.
She further wrote that a lot of baseless theories are being deliberately floated to discredit the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) amongst the masses since they overwhelmingly voted for us in the District Development Council (DDC) elections. “Regardless of who fought how many seats, our purpose to deny BJP & its proxies democratic space has been achieved,” the PDP chief’s tweet read.
In yet another tweet, she said: “Delhi is deeply rattled by PAGD so I expect this false campaign to intensify in the coming days. Many PDP leaders are already arrested & I expect the situation to worsen. But this will not break our resolve to stand united & fight for what’s rightfully ours.”—(KNO)
