Former CM Omar Abdullah on Saturday reminded the union Home Minister Rajnath Singh of PM Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech and said that the state expects it to be “acted on.”
Singh is on a four day visist to Jammu and Kashmir.
Omar tweeted: “Na golli say na gaali say, galay lagana say J&K ka masla hal ho ga. We look forward to seeing these words from Red Fort on 15th Aug acted on.”
On his four-day visit, Singh is scheduled to hold talks with the officials of the state and discuss the current situation.
CM Mehbooba, last month, met Rajnath, reportedly, to drum up support for preventing attempts to remove special status to the state under the Constitution.
The state government is caught in a catch-22 situation over the on-going matter in the Supreme Court on revoking Article 35-A of the Constitution.
