Former CM Farooq Abdullah’s Controversial Statement On Article 370
The NC claims that its leader’s comments were twisted.
The National Conference (NC) has rubbished reports that its patron Farooq Abdullah said that Article 370 of the Constitution will be restored in the Kashmir Valley with China’s help. Abdullah made the remarks during a television interview. The NC said that its leader’s comments were twisted. It is said that Abdullah never justified the expansionist or aggressive intention, what is being claimed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). “Our patron was highlighting the anger of the people because of the abrogation of Article 370 last year. He has been doing that since the past month.”
“He said that nobody is ready to accept these changes in Jammu and Kashmir,” a spokesperson of the NC said, according to the Hindi language publication of a leading newspaper. “Our leader never said that Article 370 will be restored with the help of China, which was claimed by BJP leader Sambit Patra at a press conference. He also presented some earlier statements of Mr Farooq Abdullah in a wrong manner,” the newspaper further quoted the spokesperson as saying.
