Members of Parliament from Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (JKNC) Hasnain Masoodi and Mohammad Akbar Lone on Thursday held a protest in the Parliament House in New Delhi and demanded the restoration of Article 370 and Article 35 A.
“JKNC MPs protesting in front of Gandhi statue in the foreground of Parliament House holding placards seeking restoration of JK’s Special Status,” the JKNC official twitter handle tweeted.
In the pictures posted on the party’s official handle, both the MPs are seen standing in front of the Mahatma Gandhi Statue inside the Parliament holding the placards which read “REVOKE 5th August 2019 Unconstitutional Decisions” and “RESTORE SPECIAL STATUS OF JAMMU & KASHMIR.”
It was on 5 August in 2019 that New Delhi revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated it into two union territories, J-K and Ladakh.
Today marked the second anniversary of the abrogation.
Last year also, the members of Parliament of NC and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had protested and demanded the restoration of Article 370 and Article 35 A.
