Post all party meeting held recently at New Delhi most of the Jammu and Kashmir leaders especially the former chief ministers have been speaking to different media channels and newspapers about their feelings.
In this direction former chief minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has been speaking to the press and has said that it was not expected from the Prime Minister to reverse the clock in one meeting and said that they are optimistic about the future.
He said that it would have been foolish to demand restoration of Article 370 provision in the Constitution of India that provided Jammu and Kashmir a special dispensation, and was abrogated on August 5, 2019 from the same government which nullified it.
Speaking to The Indian Express recently, Omar Abdullah was quoted as saying “It took the BJP 70 years to fulfill its political agenda for (Article) 370. Our struggle has just started. We don’t want to fool people by telling them we will get 370 back in these talks. It will be foolish to expect 370 will be back; there has been no indication it will be restored by the current government”.
Omar Abdullah has been very guarded right from the day news channels reported that the central government will hold an all party meeting as an outreach to the Jammu and Kashmir leaders so that the political process for the assembly elections is started.
