Jammu| May, 7: Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) chief and former Rajya Sabha MP Ghulam Nabi Azad has said that scrapping of Article 370 stopped stone pelting and militant attacks. However, Azad added that the recent militant attacks are a cause for concern.
Azad in his statement said that the Central government has succeeded in controlling militancy and stone pelting in Jammu and Kashmir. However, the Center also did some things which were not in the interest of the people of the state, such as Article 370.
Azad said that while removing of Article 370 was not in the favour of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, it has certainly ended stone pelting in Jammu & Kashmir. He further said that the incidents that happened in Poonch and Rajouri are a matter of concern. Azad said that militancy is not in anyone’s interest and only the common people have to bear the losses.
