National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Sunday appealed for talks with Pakistan to end terrorism from Jammu and Kashmir, saying that friendship is key to the development of the region. Abdullah said, “There is still terrorism (in Jammu and Kashmir), contrary to the (BJP’s) claim that it will end terrorism.” If we want to end this, we must talk to our neighbors. “Speaking to journalists, these words of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, former Prime Minister of the State, may change your friends.
He was responding to a question on the death of two policemen in a terror attack in Bhagat area of Srinagar on February 19. Abdullah said, “I appeal to the government to embrace the kind of work they have done with China in Ladakh and begin to withdraw the army.” What is needed here is to get Jammu and Kashmir out of the clutches of terrorism. ”
Asked about his party boycotting the Delimitation Commission meeting, he said, “We have already said that what they did on August 5 (2019) is unacceptable to us.” When we do not accept it, how can we accept the Delimitation Commissioner of Jammu and Kashmir. ”
