The newly created People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) has said that it will continue to fight for the land rights of Kashmiris.
The PAGD issued a statement on Tuesday in which it said that “the alliance strongly condemns the repeal of J&K Land Laws thereby stripping the Permanent Residents of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh of exclusive right to acquire and hold immovable property in the State – now unconstitutionally divided into two Union Territories and granting such rights to non-state subjects.”
