Farooq Abdullah pitches for dialogue on kashmir issue after winning Srinagar PS
Srinagar: National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Thursday said that he hopes the new Government in the Centre would engage in a dialogue with Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir issue.
Abdullah made these comments while seaking to reporters at the NC headquarters.
“This Parliament will not be easy. There are several important issues with respect to J-K because we have to fight them on their intention to do away with the Article 370 and 35A. Another issue is that they want to divide the Muslims and Hindus in the country; we have to fight that as well,” the NC chief said.
Abdullah said that there is a need to keep India on secular path which Constitution enshrines. “We have to protect the Constitution, drafted by (B R) Ambedkar, and take the country forward,” he said.
“We hope the new government in Delhi will do justice with J-K and engage in dialogue with Pakistan so that we are taken out of this morass,” he said.
