Dreams are being sold in Kashmir in the name of 370, not in our election agenda: Ghulam Nabi Azad

Ghulam Nabi Azad In Abp Press Conference: After quitting the Congress, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Ghulam Nabi Azad has become very active. He is currently busy preparing his new political party. Azad will soon announce the name of his new party. The public support they are getting in Jammu and Kashmir can certainly increase the difficulties of the opposition, especially the Congress. Many Congress leaders in Jammu and Kashmir have resigned from the party in support of Azad. Meanwhile, Ghulam Nabi Azad commented on many issues in ABP News’ special program ‘Press Conference’ on Wednesday. On this occasion, he said on the issue of Article 370 that today it has been three years and one month since this article was introduced. This issue has not been heard even once in the Supreme Court.      

‘Only dreams are being sold in the name of 370’

In a special program of ABP News, Ghulam Nabi Azad said that more than 3 years have passed since Article 370 was implemented. He said that only dreams are being sold in Kashmir under the name of Article 370. There are only two ways to bring back Article 370, one is Parliament and the other is the Supreme Court. He said you need a two-thirds majority to bring a law in Parliament. It has been three years since people went to the Supreme Court against this.

‘Will not make 370 an election issue’

Azad said that the Supreme Court has not heard a single case in these three years. He said that he had discussed the issue with someone from the learned Supreme Court. He said that nothing is happening on this issue at present. He said that elections will be held here in 3 to 5 months. Azad said that Article 370 will not be made an election issue.

Abolition of Article 370 saw other Kashmiri leaders arrested. But Azad was not deliberately arrested. When this question was asked to him, he said,  I was in Delhi when Article 370 was removed. 3 Chief Ministers were in Kashmir, placed under house arrest as a precautionary measure. Azad said that no Speaker of Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha would allow the Leader of the Opposition to be arrested without charge by the Parliament. An MP cannot be arrested because of Parliament. If he was in Kashmir at that time, he too would have been kept under house arrest.
