AHEAD of Prime Minister’s meeting with leaders from Jammu and Kashmir, the Congress on Sunday said that restoring full statehood and conduct of elections is a way forward to restore democracy. Addressing a press conference here, Randeep Singh Surjewala, the party General Secretary, said, “Let me draw your attention towards the Congress Working Committee resolution on August 6, 2019 whereby it clearly demanded restoration of statehood of Jammu and Kashmir. We believe that and undoing it is a direct attack on the democracy and the constitutional principles.”
“Indian National Congress believes grant of full statehood to J&K as also holding elections so that people are able to elect their representatives instead of a rule by Delhi.” he added. He said, “now it’s for the Prime Minister to decide whether to hold a meeting or to accept the demands of the Congress, the interest of the Constitution and the people of the State.”
