Apni Party Seeks Pre- 2019 Status For J&K


29 November 2021

The Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) on Sunday called on the Centre to restore the pre-August 2019 status of Jammu and Kashmir, saying there is a feeling of disempowerment and alienation among the residents following the "snatching" of its statehood. Addressing a public meeting at Budhi village in Kathua district, JKAP vice president Ghulam Hassan Mir said there is a need to win the confidence of the people of Jammu and Kashmir by restoring its statehood before assembly elections are held. The Centre revoked the special status of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir and divided it into two union territories on August 5, 2019.
