Shopian :Senior CPI( M) leader and spokesperson of People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration ( PAGD) Muhamamd Yousuf Tarigami on Tuesday said that the alliance was not formed for contesting the elections but to safeguard the special constitutional position of Jammu and Kashmir.

"PAGD was not formed for any electoral exercise.
