Jammu and Kashmir Government has allowed a delegation of National Conference from the Jammu Province to meet party President Dr Farooq Abdullah and Vice President Omar Abdullah, who are currently under detention.
“The delegation led by Provincial President Devender Singh Rana and comprising former party legislators will leave by Indigo flight from Jammu tomorrow, the 6th October 2019 in the morning”, National Conference spokesperson said here this afternoon.
The spokesperson Madan Mantoo said that the government conveyed permission to the request made by the Provincial President Rana to Governor Satya Pal Malik on Thursday last evening.
He said the decision to meet Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah had been taken at an emergent meeting of the senior functionaries and district presidents of the Jammu Province two days ago, soon after restrictions on the movement of Jammu based National Conference leaders had been lifted.
Dr Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and scores of National Conference leaders in the Kashmir Valley had been detained on August 4, 2019 while restrictions were imposed on the movement of prominent party leaders in the Jammu province. However, the restrictions on the Jammu based leaders were lifted on the evening of Wednesday.
