Drabu’s assertions on Gupkar Declaration not based on facts: CPI(M)

Gh Nabi Malik, Secretary J&K CPI (M) has issued the following statement:

Drabu’s assertions on Gupkar Declaration not based on facts: CPI(M)

Srinagar, August 30: In an Op Ed piece in Greater Kashmir, Drabu had questioned whether J&K CPI (M) had the blessing of the high command to be part of the Gupkar Deceleration or it is a “localized “show of solidarity.

To put the records straight, the CPI (M) central leadership has strongly opposed unconstitutional, illegal and authoritarian decisions taken by the BJP government on 5 August 2019. In fact, the CPI (M) has always been at the forefront to not only safeguard the special status of J&K but also restore the original position of Article 370.

In 1983 a conclave of opposition parties was held in Srinagar which was attended by CPI (M) veteran leader Jyoti Basu and  and leaders from other national and regional parties. A document was adopted in the conclave on state-center relations in which also defence of Article 370 was mentioned. Jyoti Basu was a key figure in drafting the document. When Devigoda led govt was formed which was supported by CPI (M) and other left parties, vetern CPI (M) leader Harkishan Singh Surjeet played an important role in drafting it’s common minimum programme which contained the assurance of granting maximum autonomy to J&K.

In 2010 CPI (M) Central Committee meeting adopted a resolution ‘On the Jammu and Kashmir issue’ for not only in defence of Articles 370 and 35A, but for restoring original position of Article 370. At the heart of the matter lies how in letter and spirit its eroded autonomy and special status can be restored.

Similarly, when an RSS backed NGO challenged Article 370 and 35A in the Supreme Court, an intervention application was moved by the CPI (M). Since last year the statements of CPI (M) Polit Bureau and Central Committee have clearly and repeatedly opposed the BJP government’s disastrous move to abrogate J&K’s special status, dividing and reducing it to Union Territories. 

Similarly in August 2019, CPI(M) came up with a detailed document titled: “Fraud on Constitution: Kashmir Betrayed” which is available online. The document clearly mentions that the CPI(M) is committed in its fight against the  un-constitional and undemocratic  abrogation of Article 370, 35A and constituent of Jammu & Kashmir and  asserts that these measures are totally against the unity and interests of India as a whole. In the document, the CPI(M) has vowed to support the restoration of democracy, statehood and full autonomy to J&K.

Demonstrations by CPI (M) and other Left parties throughout India were held on August 7, 2019 is a clear message to those who term the party’s J&K unit’s participation in “Gupkar Declaration” as a “localized” show of solidarity. CPI (M) and Left parties in both houses of the Parliament , charecterized this move as an attempt to destroy the basis structure of the Indian Constitution. They have conducted nationwide compaings in defence of Article 370 and against the destruction of the state of Jammu & Kashmir.

Our General Secretary Sitaram Yrchuri has repeatedly raised this issue in every forum.

CPI(M) has also filed writ petition in the  Supreme Court of India challenging the abrogation of Article 370, 35A and J& K Reorganisation Act 2019.

In an Editorial on August 2, 2020, People’s Democracy, the official organ of CPI (M), the party’s position is reaffirmed as under “the onslaught of the BJP and RSS must be fought back squarely. In the case of J&K, we have seen several secular opposition parties unwilling to take a firm stand that the special status and statehood of J&K should be restored. They seek to reduce the matter to only the release of political prisoners and restoration of democratic rights. This is a compromising stand. The fight for democracy, secularism and federalism requires a clear-cut stand – statehood along with special status for J&K must be restored. Not to do so would further diminish India as a secular democracy”.
