‘Article 370 can never be restored’

BJP leader Syed Shahnawaz Hussain on Friday campaigned for the District Development Council (DDC) polls in Jammu and Kashmir and reiterated that the provisions of Article 370 could never be restored.

“The ‘Gupkar Gang’ is deceiving people by making promises over its restoration. The atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir has changed after the abrogation of Article 370 last year. Jammu and Kashmir will see a new dawn of development,” Mr. Hussain, recently appointed Kashmir in-charge for the elections, said.

The former Union Minister and BJP national spokesman targeted the National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the issue of dynasty politics. “Most leaders in Jammu and Kashmir are those who have a family background and did not allow others to grow,” he said.

The DDC polls are due to start on November 28.
