Early Times Report

Srinagar, Apr 24: National Conference (NC) vice president Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that these elections are significant since it provides the people of the state an opportunity to reveal how passionately they feel about their identity including Art 370 and 35-A.
Addressing two separate public meets at Chawalgam and Homeshalibug, in Kulgam district he said that the threats of BJP-RSS to abrogate Art 370, Art 35A will be defeated as the people of the state will not allow them succeed in their nefarious designs. "Today state is facing an assault on its special status from all sides, however all the machinations of the forces as are inimical to our status will fall flat if the people of our state show resoluteness in protecting the identity and integrity of our state. This time people across the state have taken it upon themselves to trounce the efforts as are hell bent to destroy the special constitutional status of the state," he said. Omar further said "Today's elections are not about choosing MLAs, as our state is fraught with a challenging situation. The need of the hour is to send a representative to Parliament who can fight for the interests of state. He said the situation that the state is facing today demands of having a credible voice at Delhi who can work tireless both within and outside parliament for the protection of Art 370, Art 35-A.
Seeing the scope of work and the challenges we are facing, we considerately fielded Retired Justice Hasnain Sb from Anantnag constituency. He is known for his pronounced judgments on Art 370, Art 35A. He boasts the necessary political and legal acumen to deal with the situation."
While highlighting the importance of Art 370, Art 35A, Omar said, "It is needless to say how important Art 370, Art 35-A are for the state and its people. Today the people of our state are masters of its own land. They work on their land, and derive their sustenance from it. God forbid, if these articles are done away with, the consequences that will follow shall be beyond our comprehension. The people of the state will stop to cleave to a respectable denomination which Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah bestowed upon them through famous land to tiller reforms and other people friendly measures. Our kids would not be able to derive various scholarships from government. The youth of our state will cease to be the sole beneficiary of jobs in government sector. Keeping in mind the far-reaching consequences of abrogation of our status, we deemed it fit to have Hasnain Masoodi represent us in parliament from Anantnag." He said that the low voter turnout in Anantnag and Bijbehara in Anantnag Parliamentary Constituency is a lesson for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Mehbooba Mufti.
