Urge for Article 370, statehood no issue: Fayaz Mir

Srinagar July 27 (KNS): Member Rajya Sabha Fayaz Mir on Monday expressed surprise over demanding statehood back to J&K by few political parties and questioned why they relied on that which is due to J&K and abandoning core issue of Article 370.

Talking to KNS, Fayaz Mir termed August 5, 2019 a "darkest" day in the history of J&K and said it is surprising some political parties have relied upon the statehood and gave up from Article 370.

He said statehood to J&K should be no concern for political parties as it has been promised by Home Minister Amit Shah on the floor of house last year, besides BJP senior functionary Ram Madhav repeatedly assured that it will be given back to J&K.

"GoI will have to resume statehood of J&K as it is promised with the people of J&K. We should rake up why special status of J&K was repealed. Why few political parties are trying to change the direction", he questioned? (KNS)
