Almost two years after the partition of the state and the revocation of constitutional special status, the central government is going to take new steps to create a political atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir. A meeting of all the recognized political parties of the former state has been convened in Delhi next Thursday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present at the meeting. According to central sources, the meeting will discuss the beginning of the political process, including the demarcation of the new boundaries of the divided state legislatures. The political process in Jammu and Kashmir has been in full swing for a few days now. Recently, Farooq Abdullah, leader of the Gupkar Alliance, a new alliance of political parties in the Union Territory, told the media that they would not shy away from discussing the start of the political process.
Abdullah also spoke to former state chief minister PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti about the issue. Mehboobai told the media that an all-party meeting of the center has been called. He said he had been requested to attend the meeting in Delhi on June 24. The Center, however, did not officially comment on the meeting. The news was not opposed. On Friday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah held a meeting in Delhi on the state’s development and security situation. The meeting was attended by Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and central security officials. The Home Minister tweeted about the meeting and said that the main goal of the government is to expedite the development work.
Jammu and Kashmir has been under the central rule for three years. Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Although the number of protests is less now than before.
The number of terrorist attacks and deaths has also decreased. But despite that, many restrictions remain. 4G internet service was not launched. The political process has not started. Although the hearing has not yet begun. The new political alliance in the Valley still does not want to stay away from the electoral process.
It will be beneficial to establish the will of the government. That is why the Gupkar Alliance took part in the election of the District Development Board and also won the lion’s share of seats. Coalition leaders believe that their goals must be met by participating in the political process. India is also under pressure from the international community to resolve the Kashmir issue. As President of the United States, Donald Trump did not embarrass India with Kashmir. But after the coup, the Biden administration is raising questions about the return of normalcy to the valley and human rights. Stopping that criticism is also seen as the goal of this new political initiative.
