Srinagar, Sep 20: Former minister and senior vice-president Peoples Conference Abdul Gani Vakil today questioned NC president and MP Farooq Abdullah for giving a miss to Article 370 in his maiden speech in Lok Sabha.
In a statement Vakil said, “It’s astonishing to see that Abdullah who made his maiden speech in the Parliament gave a complete miss to the revocation of Article 370. Though he spoke about dialogue with Pakistan and internet ban, but Farooq didn’t utter a single word about revocation of Article 370 and the Gupkar declaration,” Vakil said.
Vakil said people were hoping that Farooq Abdullah would talk about “Gupkar Declaration” and the fall out of situation in Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370.
“But he gave a silent burial to the core issue in the parliament. This questions the sole purpose of Gupkar Declaration,” he added.
Missing the best opportunity to highlight issue of Articles 370, 35 A by Farooq Abdullah in his maiden speech in Lok Sabha is astonishing and unfortunate, Vakil added.
