Article 370 will be reinstated, Mehbooba Mufti to G N Azad

Peoples Democratic Party chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday reacted to former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s assertion about Article 370 and said that there are voices who believe 370 will be reinstated in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Ghulam Nabi Azad, during a rally in Kashmir’s Baramulla the other had said, “To restore Article 370 would need around 350 votes in the Lok Sabha and 175 votes in the Rajya Sabha. This is a number no political party has or is likely to ever get.”

In reaction, the PDP leader went on to say that ‘there are voices in Jammu and Kashmir who believe Article 370 will be reinstated.’ “It’s his (Ghulam Nabi Azad’s) personal opinion…Congress had raised its voice against the British and stopped them. Similarly, there are voices in J&K who believe 370 will be reinstated and this will be resolved,” Mufti said.—KMS
