Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP Surpiya Sule tried to play the emotional card in grandstanding on the Article 370 discussion in the Parliament today.
She said that she sits on seat no. 462 in the Assembly and National Conference MP Farooq Abdullah sits on seat no. 461. “He’s elected from Jammu and Kashmir, we can’t hear him today. This debate will be incomplete if you ask me,” she said.
Sule tried to imply that Abdullah is absent in the Assembly because his movements are restricted due to the security situation in Kashmir following stripping of Article 370 yesterday. Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah were detained by Police last evening to prevent any law and order situation. Farooq Abdullah, however, wasn’t detained. Nor was he under house arrest.
However, Union Home Minister Amit Shah made it very clear that NC patriarch Farooq Abdullah is at his home out of his own free will. That he is neither arrested nor detained.

Sule then expressed how Farooq Abdullah is unwell. To that Home Minister Amit Shah replied how he is not a doctor and can’t really help Farooq Abdullah when he is unwell.
