HOW TO PROCEED?
Mainstream political camps in Kashmir are in a mess and want to give a joint massage to New Delhi that the decisions taken by them on August 5, last year were not acceptable to them.
Recently all these parties in a joint statement said that they stand by the Gupkar declaration signed by all the parties, to fight jointly for the restoration of special status.
Inside circles of the National Conference said that Farooq Abdullah knows that the Modi government will not reverse its decision on article 370, but think that the court will give them relief on this issue. Most of the political parties in Kashmir have little faith in the Supreme Court to reverse the decision of the parliament and want to intensify public protests for restoration rather than waiting for court.
The National Conference, PDP and other political forces in Kashmir valley want to give their resistance some shape in coming weeks as they expect the release of Mehbooba Mufti very soon. But there are no indications so far that the central government is going to release her so soon.
PDP has started its politics on the streets of Kashmir as recently they brought out a protest demanding release of political prisoners, youth lodged in different jails, human rights violations, Media Gag etc.
