Farooq Abdullah said hold local body elections
Veteran leader from Jammu and Kashmir Farooq Abdullah said that his party will boycott the general elections and state elections if the centre doesn’t make its stand on the controversial Article 35A in Jammu and Kashmir clear
Article 35A, that bars outsiders from owning property in Jammu and Kashmir, has been challenged in the Supreme Court. Last week, Supreme Court deferred the hearing to January after the state authorities cited possible law and order problems in holding municipal and Panchayat elections.
Lashing out at the centre, Mr Abdullah said the role of the central government and the present dispensation in Jammu and Kashmir before the Supreme Court goes clearly against the wishes and aspirations of the people of the state
