Those opposing abrogation of Article 370 ignorant of JK’s ground reality, says Azad

Doda: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and Democratic Progressive Azad Party chief, Ghulam Nabi Azad, on Sunday said those opposing the abrogation of Article 370 are ignorant of the history and geography of the Union territory.

He made the remark amid the Supreme Court hearing on a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity behind the GoI’s move on August 5, 2019.

Marking the fourth anniversary of the much-debated move this month, the BJP hailed the new era of peace, development and prosperity in Kashmir since the revocation of Article 370.

Speaking to ANI in Doda, Azad took a swipe at regional parties without naming them.

“Those who are opposing (the revocation of Article 370 in Supreme Court) are ignorant of the situation on the ground, as well as the history and geography of Jammu and Kashmir. Article 370 was not meant for any particular area, province or religion but was equally beneficial to all,” the former Congress leader said.

“I have full faith in the Supreme Court. I believe it will look into all aspects of this (abrogation of Article 370) move,” Azad added.
