The Gupkar alliance was formed by seven parties in October last year to fight for the restoration of Articles 370 and 35A, which were scrapped on August 5, 2019.
A simmering disquiet in the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration finally spilled over with People’s Conference pulling out on Tuesday.
Lone’s party leaders had accused the PAGD leaders of fielding the proxy candidates in the just concluded DDC polls in which the alliance won 110 seats.
Senior PDP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Fayaz Mir also accused the NC of fielding proxy candidates against the PAGD nominees in Kupwara district.
PDP leader said they are prepared for a "long and arduous political fight" for the restoration of Article 370 of the Constitution which was "illegally" abrogated.
While his detractors attempted to retard the process, PM Modi continued to lay the foundations of that new vision and to win the peoples’ confidence and support.
The Gupkar Alliance emerged as the single largest group with 110 out of 280 seats, while BJP emerged as single largest party with 75 seats.
With Congress support, the PAGD will wrest control of 13 out of the 20 districts in J&K while BJP will run six DDCs in Jammu region.
BJP general secretary Santhosh also questioned the alliance's claim that the results are endorsement of its stand against the abrogation of Article 370.
DDC polls: Gupkar alliance bags over 100 seats, BJP emerges as single largest party by winning 73 seats
This is for the first time the BJP has registered a win in the Valley while facing regional heavyweights like the NC and the PDP.
According to the recent leads reported for 231 out of 280 segments that went to the polls across J&K, the PAGD is leading on 96 seats while the BJP is ahead on 56 constituencies.
The eight-phase elections are seen as a triangular contest among the People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), the BJP and the Apni Party floated by former finance minister Altaf Bukhari.
Jammu and Kashmir People's Conference will contest on two seats and Jammu and Kashmir People's Movement will fight on one seat.
Candidates put up by the PAGD are immediately whisked away to 'secure locations' in the name of security and confined to those 'secure locations', he said.
Addressing a press conference here, BJP national spokesperson Shahnawaz also said the upcoming DDC polls were being fought over local developmental issues.
