Srinagar/IBNS: National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah has convened a meeting at his residence on Thursday to decide on the future course of action on 'Gupkar Declaration' with regard to the scrapping of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir by the Centre last year.

Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah met former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti after she was released from detention after 14 months on Tuesday.

"My father and I called on Mehbooba Mufti Sahiba to enquire about her well-being after her release from detention," National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah wrote in a tweet.

Mehbooba Mufti will also attend the meeting convened by Farooq Abdullah.

"She has kindly accepted Farooq sahib's invitation to join a meeting of the Gupkar Declaration signatories tomorrow afternoon," Omar Abdullah told reporters.

Gupkar Declaration is a resolution that was issued after an all-party meeting on August 4, 2019 at the Gupkar residence of the National Conference chief.

The resolution was adopted by all parties to unite ahead of Centre's decision to scrap Article 370 giving special status to Jammu and Kashmir and split it into two Union territories.

As per the resolution, all parties unanimously decided to stand united to protect and defend the identity, autonomy and special status of Jammu and Kashmir against all attacks and onslaughts.
