Abdullah’s remarks on Art 370 restoration ‘unacceptable’: Karan Singh: SENIOR Congress leader Karan Singh said Wednesday National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah’s remarks on restoring the special status of Jammu and Kashmir were “totally unacceptable” and could provoke “unrealistic expectations” among the people of Kashmir. “My old friend Farooq Abdullah has made an astounding statement to the effect that Article 370 will be restored with China’s support,” Singh said.
