Anantnag June 28: National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Sunday said that his party  won’t accept “illegal and unconstitutional” things done in Jammu and Kashmir.

“We won’t accept everything done in Jammu and Kashmir which is illegal and unconstitutional. Do you think I am going to accept what is unconstitutional,” Farooq told reporters at Qaimoh Kulgam.

He was replying to questions from media persons about the happenings taking place in Jammu and Kashmir post abrogation of Article 370 last year like framing of new domicile rules in the Union Territory.

“Without unity you have nothing. The time we are facing is a trial from Allah. Ask Allah don’t put us in so much of trial. But we should not be afraid of trials. Allah might have kept something better for us,” he said.

Referring to his detention post August 5, 2019, Dr Farooq said, “All prisoners are the same and there is no difference. They are all equal. I don’t differentiate between you and others. We are all one. Maintain unity for a purpose and not unity just for the sake of election. Unity should be of purpose,” he added.

He expressed concern over the situation along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh and asked India and China to show restraint and engage in military de-escalation through dialogue. (KINS)
