Protest in Jammu over Farooq Abdullah’s remarks on special status

The Dogra Front, a local political outfit, staged a protest in Jammu on Tuesday against National Conference patron Farooq Abdullah's remarks on the issue of restoring the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. Raising slogans against Farooq Abdullah during the protest, the members of Dogra Front demanded the termination of Abdullah’s Lok Sabha membership.

The protesters appealed to Lok Sabha Speaker to take cognizance of Farooq Abdullah's “anti-national” remarks on Article 370 and take action against him. The BJP had earlier accused Farooq Abdullah of making "seditious and anti-national" statements on the issue of restoring the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, a charge denied by the NC which alleged that the BJP had twisted his remarks, news agency PTI reported.
