Mumbai: National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah said on Tuesday that Section 370 should be withdrawn and reinstated to bring “peace” to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Abdullah, who spoke briefly in the Lok Sabha, said that one needs to think about the steps taken on August 5 last year.
“There is an encounter going on even today in Central Kashmir. There is no peace. Unless we think that the steps we have taken on August 5 last year … peace will come only when those steps are taken back. There can be no peace without it,” Abdullah said.
The Parliament in August last year approved the proposal to repeal Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and passed a bill for partition in the two union territories of the state – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
