New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (JKNC) president Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday said that Article 370 of the Constitution of India, which was abrogated in August 2019, has to be reinstated, to bring back normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir.

“If normalcy is to be brought in Kashmir, then Article 370 has to be reinstated,” said the former Chief Minister of JK, while speaking to media persons in Delhi.

In August 2019, the Government of India scrapped Article 370 which gave special rights to the people of Jammu and Kashmir, and bifurcated the region into two union territories- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
