National Conference leader and former Member of Legislative Council Dr. Bashir Ahmad Veeri called upon Dr. Farooq Abdullah at his Delhi residence today.
Dr. Abdullah expressed his deep concerns over protection of Article 35-A of the Constitution of India.
Dr. Abdullah emphasized that all the rational people of J&K should realize the gravity of the situation and must unite against nefarious designs of anti J&K elements.
He stressed that Articles 35-A and 370 are a bridge between J&K & rest of India and any attempt to fiddle with them will have catastrophic consequences.
“Safeguarding constitutional position of J&K state is core agenda of National Conference,” said Dr Farooq Abdullah.
Lamenting those who deceived and incarcerated Sheikh Sahab for power and lust at the cost of constitutional position of J&K, Dr. Abdullah said that “had they not deceived popular leadership at that time, the present situation would never have arisen.”
Dr. Abdullah reiterated that all shades of political spectrum must unite and safeguard constitutional position of the State & help in restoration of eroded autonomy of the State.
Dr. Veeri was accompanied by Supreme Court lawyer Suhail Malik who presented his father’s Kashmiri poetry book “Sarab dar Saraab” to Dr. Abdullah.
Dr. Abdullah appreciated the contribution & serving nature of Bashir Malik who has served as Director (News) Doordarshan & All India Radio.
