Will fight for 35 A until death: Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar, Aug 11:Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference (NC) Chief Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said he would fight for Article 35 A until his death.

“We are fighting for Article 35 A, we hired a good lawyer and we will try to make sure that it is not tampered with. We will not allow it to be changed. We have always fought for 35 A. I don’t know why they try to raise this issue every time, they should know that it will create more problems. Till I don’t go down in my grave, I will fight against them,” Abdullah told ANI.
The statement came less than a week after a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) challenging the validity of Article 35 A, which disallows people from residing in Jammu and Kashmir from buying or owning immovable property in the state, settle permanently, or get state government jobs, was brought before the Supreme Court.
while commenting on Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama’s recent statement on former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru said the spiritual leader was right in saying what he said. “Dalai Lama was right, Mahatma Gandhi indeed wanted Jinnah to be the Prime Minister, however, Jinnah denied because he knew that he could have been removed anytime.
