Srinagar: Peoples Conference (PC) chairman Sajad Gani Lone today hoped that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will get justice from supreme court in the petitions challenging the revocation of Article 370.
Addressing a press conference here, he thanked all the lawyers for presenting the case brilliantly. “We hope supre court will restore pre-August 5 , 2019 position to J&K and return us our rights,” he said.
He said not Article 370 but the "rigged elections" of 1987 were responsible for the ‘rise of militancy in J&K.” According to him Article 370 was wrongly projected by the government as the cause of bringing the gun.
“We are hopeful that justice is done with us in the supreme court. We are optismistic that the supreme court restores August 4, 2019 position and give us back our rights,”he said.
“I personally thank all lawyers who brilliantly pleaded our case in the court. People of Jammu and Kashmir are thankful to them,”he said. Lone said all the main lawyers opposing the abrogation were non-Kashmiris.
