Abrogation of Article 370 will pave way for ‘Azadi’, says Farooq Abdullah

Three time chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and president of National Conference (NC) Farooq Abdullah on Monday said the abrogation of Article 370 will pave way for ‘Azadi’ for the people of the state.

“Do they (New Delhi) think that they will abrogate Article 370 and we will be quiet? They are wrong. We will fight against it. I think its Allah’s will that they are trying to abrogate it. Let them do it and it will pave way for our Azadi,” Abdullah said while addressing an election rally in Munawarabad area of Downtown Srinagar.

The debate over the abrogation of the Article 370 has turned into a major controversy in the state following a bunch of PILs in the Supreme Court.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which released its election manifesto today, also reiterated its stand about the abrogation of the Article 370 and 35A that provide special status to the residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
