SRINAGAR, NOV 11 (PTK): National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah Tuesday said those who raise voices against “BJP’s policies are labeled as anti national” by the BJP leaders.
“Jammu Kashmir has been pushed backwards since Article 370 was abrogated. At that time, BJP leaders tried to mislead people of Jammu that the region will prosper after abrogating Article 370. See now the situation in Jammu and Kashmir,” he told.
He said, “Those who are raising voices against BJP’s policies are labeled as anti-nationals. We are asking them why our land is being sold, why jobs are snatched from our youth. Where are 50,000 jobs which were promised at the abrogation of Article 370?”
Farooq Abdullah is camping in Jammu for the last several days where he has been meeting people from various walks of life. Leaders of Peoples’ Alliance for the Gupkar Declaration recently also held a meeting in Jammu at Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s residence. They also decided to contest DDC elections jointly.
At least seven political parties have formed the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration for the restoration of Article 370 which the Centre abrogated on August 5 last year.
The People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration has also given it a formal structure with Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti its president and vice president, respectively.
Traditionally bitter political rivals, the National Conference, People’s Democratic Party have decided to keep their individual rivalries in suspended animation and get together to get Article 370 restored. (PTK)
