Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday called on India to ‘wake up’, and warned New Delhi that: “You are losing Kashmir.”
“Why am I playing with fire? Is that not true? Are the stone pelters fighting for MP-ship or MLA-ship or some ministerial post? Wake up, before it is too late,” said Abdullah, demanding that the youth deserved to be heard.
In a recent interview with foreign media, Abdullah said the violence and loss of lives during the Srinagar by-poll “are a tragedy and a failure of the government of the day.”
Abdullah, who served as the chief minister of India-held Jammu and Kashmir from 1982 to 1984, also held Pakistan partially responsible for the situation in Kashmir.
