Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has also retaliated after BJP’s statement on National Conference (NC) leader Farooq Abdullah regarding the restoration of Article 370 with the help of China. Singhvi said that Farooq Abdullah’s statement was highly irresponsible and condemnable. However, the former Chief Minister has been given clarification on behalf of the NC and said that his talk was misinterpreted.
Abhishek Manu Singhvi tweeted on Tuesday, “Political ideology, differences, discrimination are all in place, but at the time when China is positioned with evil intentions on our borders, then Farooq Abdullah’s statement in favor of China is not only extremely Responsible but also condemnable. ”
The National Conference denied that Speaker Farooq Abdullah had said that Article 370 would be reinstated with the cooperation of China and accused the BJP of completely twisting his comments in the TV interview. The party said Abdullah never in his interview on Sunday justified China’s expansionist intent or its militant attitude.
