Srinagar: At a time when the pro-BJP news channels of India are referring to the Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) leaders as ‘Gupkar Gang’, and Congress party is being criticized for being part of it, Union Home Minister Amit Shah also called the group by the same name.
Amit Shah wrote a scathing series of tweets criticising the PAGD and asking the Congress whether the party supports the alliance.
“The Gupkar Gang is going global. They want foreign forces to intervene in Jammu and Kashmir. The Gupkar Gang also insults India’s Tricolour,” Shah said, asking Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi whether they support “such moves of the Gupkar Gang”.
Shah said the Congress leaders should make their stand crystal clear to the people of India.
Shah accused that the Congress and PAGD 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, he said.
Shah asserted that Jammu and Kashmir has been, is and will always remain an integral part of India.
He said Indian people will no longer tolerate an “unholy ‘global gathbandhan’ against our national interest”.
“Either the Gupkar Gang swims along with the national mood or else the people will sink it,” he said.
