Jammu and Kashmir National Conference president, Dr. Farooq Abdullah Tuesday said every party in the region is united on the restoration of Article 370 and 35-A.
Talking to media persons on the sidelines of a function at Nawai Subh complex in Srinagar, Dr. Farooq said that every party has its own system, however, as far as Jammu and Kashmir, Article 370 and 35-A is concerned, they all are united.
Referring to the BJP, he said that they want to create a division between Muslims so that they can rule. “They have always used the policy of divide and rule and they want to follow the same, but we have to stay united as unity is the only way we can defeat these people,” he said.
He said that they are waiting for the court hearing regarding the restoration of Article 370 and 35-A. “We have not picked up guns neither pelting stones. We want to resolve the issue through the Gandhian way and what Delhi will do is their job,” he said.
Replying to a question, he said that Mehbooba Mufti has her own way of doing this and it is her job what to do and what not.
He also said that everyone needs to get together to find a solution to growing problems, especially the problems being faced by the youth, otherwise there will be destruction. “We need to create avenues for the youth, if we fail to do that the problems will be compounded and the drug menace that is prevalent here will create trouble for the youth and coming generation,” he said.
