Right platform, wrong platitudes

The resolution adopted by the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) came across as not being exactly thought through. What exactly is being said? That the PAGD will fight a constitutional battle to restore the rights of the people of Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh. Isn’t that already being done?

There are scores of petitions in the Supreme Court challenging the abrogation on a wide variety of grounds. That the Supreme Court has not even listed it for hearing in the last 300 odd days should tell the PAGD where the constitutional battle is headed. Of course it is a constitutional battle but it has to be fought politically. That is what will make PAGD relevant.
