Srinagar, September 08, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the National Conference (NC) has dubbed the India’s decision to abrogate special status under Article 370 an aggression. The NC Lok Sabha members, Muhammad Akbar Lone and Hasnain Masoodi in a joint statement also termed August 5, the day when Jammu and Kashmir’s special status was revoked, a black day in the history of Kashmir. On this day, the Indian government had also announced its decision to bifurcate the territory into two Union territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
“The act of unilaterally backtracking on the constitutional assurances is no less than an aggression on the territory,” the statement said. With the scrapping of Article 370 and Article 35A, the Indian government has permanently branded itself as undependable and deceitful, the MPs said.
Lone and Masoodi said, the people of Kashmir would never allow the treacherous onslaught of New Delhi on the identity of the territory to annihilate its character. “The stealing of Kashmir’s rights through unilateral and unconstitutional means is no less than an aggressive deceitful conquest and thievery,” they said.
