In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the National Conference has urged the authorities to restore all the democratic rights of the people of the territory.

The NC senior leaders and members of parliament, Muhammad Akbar Lone and Hasnain Masoodi, in a joint statement in Srinagar said that it was heartening to note that the people of Kashmir were being denied their rights enshrined in the Constitution.

They said the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Indian government has disrespected the Constitution while dealing with Jammu and Kashmir. They further said that had the present ruling dispensation been so genuine in its regard for the Constitution then the constitutionally guaranteed status of Jammu and Kashmir would not have been done away with unilaterally and deceitfully?

Further, they said the people of Kashmir have been disenfranchised and their Constitutional and democratic rights have been snatched as well.—INP
