Abdullah said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti should not "misinterpret" the signs of normalcy and activities in the Valley as restoration of normalcy as all such activities were being carried out "in accordance with the weekly schedules being issued by Hurriyat leaders".
Speaking at a public meeting on Thursday last, Abdullah had said PoK is not "your father's property" as he insisted that neither India nor Pakistan can capture the state's territory falling outside their control. He added that autonomy to both sides of Kashmir is the only viable solution to the almost seventy-year-old problem. He said the reality of LoC and International Border between the two nations can not be challenged at the strength of military power and therefore the two parts of the state should be granted maximum autonomy.
Reportedly, Abdullah said that the Indian Government has no power to take back the part of Kashmir occupied by Pakistan.
Without naming the National Conference (NC) President, the union minister said that it become necessary for such leaders to raise question mark on Kashmir once they are voted out of power.
Prof Virender Gupta criticised Farooq Abdullah for indirectly supporting the demand of plebiscite in Kashmir by misinterpreting the United Nations resolution.
He said that Kashmir is a political problem and can not be solved by sending troops or by arresting thousands of people.
The former Chief Minister expressed anguish over large scale devastation and destruction in Kashmir Valley during over past four months and claimed 90 youngsters got killed, hundreds were blinded and thousands injured. The comment was made by Abdullah while addressing his party members at Kishtwar in the Jammu region.
He said Modi's statement was nothing more than a political gimmick.
