April 03, 2024

National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah has said that the plight of people in occupied Jammu and Kashmir has deteriorated since August 5, 2019, when the Modi-led Indian government revoked the territory’s special status.

Addressing a party convention in Islamabad district, Omar Abdullah criticized New Delhi for failing to deliver on promises of development, employment, and anti-corruption measures.

He highlighted the widespread discontent across all sections of Jammu and Kashmir, emphasizing the dire situation faced by contractors and the non-payment of dues, even to police vehicle providers for the past nine months.
