A delegation of National Conference (NC) leaders today met the party chief and former J&K Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah at his residence. Abdullah is currently detained at his residence under the Public Safety Act and his house is turned into ‘subsidiary jail’. The Public Safety Act allows the government to detain a person for up to 2 years without a trial.

As reported by news agency ANI, NC leader Akbar Lone said that they feel cheated with abrogation of Article 370 and are trying to bring back the same. Another leader Hasnain Masoodi said that they want everything to be as it was prior to August 5 in Jammu and Kashmir. In a historical decision, the government of India had abrogated Article 370 which gave separate status to J&K and bifurcated the state into two union territories. That way, the state finally became a part of India without any riders attached after more than 70 years of Independence.
The NC delegation is expected to meet Farooq Abdullah’s son Omar later in the day today.
