Srinagar: National President of National Conference (NC) and former Jammu and Kashmir CM Farooq Abdullah has made a big claim while talking to media at Nowshera in Rajouri district. Farooq Abdullah said he was approached by the Modi government at the Centre as Union Home Minister Amit Shah wanted to meet him but he refused to meet him.
Meanwhile, Abdullah launched a scathing attack on Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Abdullah said, "I want to tell the government that you will not be able to bring peace to Kashmir unless you restore Article 370 of the Constitution." Not only Hindus but Muslims have also been killed by terrorists here. Abdullah said the recent incidents in the Valley are eye-opening for those who said terrorism would end after section 370 was abolished.
Abdullah said the atmosphere in the valley is not conducive to the return of Kashmiri Pandits. The BJP is dividing the country on the basis of religion. The BJP is also creating a communal atmosphere in UP. In the conversation, Farooq Abdullah also opposed the detention of 900 stone pelters. He said, yes, the government contacted me. Amit Shah wanted to meet me, but I refused. Then I had a pre-planned plan to go to Rajouri and Poonch.
