Jammu and Kashmir National Conference party president Farooq Abdullah claimed that his party would form the next government in the state, a day after the NC won three parliament seats in Kashmir.

Abdullah, who won from the Srinagar parliamentary constituency, said he would defend the state’s special status and demand regional autonomy, and urged party workers to prepare for the upcoming assembly elections.

“National Conference is well poised to register massive victory in all the three regions in the upcoming assembly elections and will form the government with absolute majority,” he said.

Abdullah said preservation of Article 35A and Article 370 of the Constitution was the top priority for the NC.

“Our agenda is to foster amity and bridge the gap between various sections of society…Party will work towards dignified return of Kashmiri Pandits to their homes in the Valley,” he said.

Out of the total six Lok Sabha seats in the state, NC won three in the Kashmir region, while BJP won two seats in Jammu and one in Ladakh.

Abdullah also congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his stellar victory and hoped justice would be done to the people of J&K.

“Rights of the people are needed to be protected and a sense of security instilled among them. Centre will have to walk the extra mile in reaching out to the people, expedite development, complete the rail project to link Kashmir immediately and lay emphasis on dependable road communication,” Abdullah said.
