The National Conference leader further said, “There nobody told the Prime Minister that we accept August 5. We said that we are angry about it. Mehbooba Mufti and Farooq Abdullah clearly told the PM that it took 70 years for the BJP to make the agenda of removing 370 successful. Even if we take 70 months, we will not back down from our mission.
With this, he said, “We were not called there as an alliance. Had it been called, only one would have been called from the Alliance side. There parties were served. Members of the Gupkar Alliance took part in the meeting. In the meeting, we did not talk about anything which was outside the agenda of the Alliance.
On the other hand, National Conference President Farooq Abdullah said on the meeting with PM Modi, “It was a very good meeting with the PM. All the parties put their point in front of him. This was the first step from his side that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir should be improved by any means and a political phase should be started. Can’t say anything until I talk to my tribe.
