This is not the India I believe in, says Farooq Abdullah on scrapping of Article370

New Delhi, Aug 6 :  National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah said he has been placed under house arrest but “We are not slaves and This is not the India I believe in, scrapping of Article370 shows the dictatorship by Modi government.”

“Why would I stay inside my house on my own will when my state is being burnt, when my people are being executed in jails? This is not the India I believe in.” Abdulah said.

“As soon as the gate will open and our people will be out, we will fight, we’ll go to the court. We’re not gun-runners, grenade-throwers, stone-throwers, we believe in peaceful resolutions. They want to murder us. My son (Omar Abdullah) is in jail

A day after Article 370 was scrapped by the Central government, former Chief Minister and President of National Conference Farooq Abdullah made an appearance before the media in Srinagar. He accused Home Minister Amit Shah of lying and said he has been placed under house arrest.

Speaking to news channels, he said: “I am not allowed to go out and come out of the house.”

Reacting to the government’s decision to scrap Article 370, he said that this is unconstitutional. “It is the dictatorship by Modi government. We have never been the ones who want to separate nor do we want to separate from this nation. But, don’t take away our honour and dignity, we are not slaves,” he said.

“Dictatorial authority has been evoked and not a democratic one. I don’t know how many have been arrested. Nobody is allowed to come in or go out, we are under house arrest,” he said.
