Justice must be done to people of J&K, Farooq Abdullah on assembly elections
New Delhi: Questioning the rationale of not holding elections in Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Monday said the people of Union Territory are also a part of India and justice should be done to them accordingly.
Speaking to reporters in Delhi, National Conference president Farooq Abdullah said, “Elections have still not happened in Jammu and Kashmir. It’s been six to seven years. What is the reason? We are also a part of India. We should also get justice.”
Farooq Abdullah further said that after the recent results of the Assembly polls in five states, parties in the INDIA bloc should start working harder in a synchronised manner.
“Defeat and victory keep happening. We should learn from victories and defeats. This defeat will not make a difference to the INDIA alliance. We will have to work harder. We have to work in a synchronised manner. We have a long way to go,” he said.
Earlier today, Farooq Abdullah arrived in Delhi to attend the winter session of Parliament.
