PM Modi convenes all-party meeting for the first time after removing Article 370

Big political stir regarding Jammu and Kashmir

The politics of Jammu and Kashmir can once again take a turn. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called a meeting of all political parties of Jammu and Kashmir on June 24. Many leaders of the Center including Home Minister Amit Shah can also attend this meeting. In this meeting, there is a possibility of discussion regarding the conduct of assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.
This is believed to be the first major initiative by the Center to end the political deadlock in Jammu and Kashmir, nearly two years after the abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories in August 2019. Leaders of both the regions of Jammu and Kashmir have been called in this meeting.

The Center has invited National Conference President Farooq Abdullah, PDP President Mehbooba Mufti, J&K Apni Party’s Altaf Bukhari and People’s Conference chief Sajjad Lone to the meeting. BJP and Congress leaders from Jammu and Kashmir are also likely to attend the all-party meeting.

Mehbooba Mufti has confirmed that she had received a call for the meeting to be held on June 24. He said that I have not decided yet to go to the meeting. I will take a final decision after discussing with my party members.

At the same time, CPM leader and spokesperson of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration MY Tarigami said that he has not received any call from Delhi yet, but if he is invited, it will be welcomed. He said that we have never closed our doors for engagement with the Centre. However, I have no idea about the meeting. If so, it would be welcomed.
Article 370 was removed from Jammu and Kashmir on 5 August 2019. After this, several parties of the state together formed the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration. It also includes parties like National Conference and PDP.
