Will repeal Public Safety Act if NC voted to power: Omar Abdullah
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that his party would scrap the controversial Public Safety Act (PSA) if voted to power.
"No mother will have to look for their children in jails if we are voted to power and for it this parliament election would serve as a semi-final," said Abdullah while addressing a poll rally at Circuit House in south Kashmir's Shopian district which will go to polls on May 6.
He said that this election was being fought for the protection of the special identity of Jammu and Kashmir.
"Elections are generally contested for the development but this time we are fighting them for safeguarding Article 370 and 35 A," said Abdullah.
He said that people would lose their land and employment if the special status of state was abrogated.
