Srinagar: The ruling National Conference Tuesday said the party would never allow anybody to dilute Article 370. “Under Article 370, our State holds a special status unlike the other states and many vested interests are trying to weaken this position. NC leadership will never let anyone dilute that position and Article 370 will always be protected,” NC General Secretary Sheikh Nazir said in a statement issued here. He said many political parties have only one agenda and that is to weaken NC at grass root level. “People will defeat them always as they have done in the past as well. The enemies of NC are aware about the fact that the party is the only party that protects the political rights of the people. The people must remain cautious and at the same time ensure that party is strengthening at grass root level,” he said. He said NC is the only party in the State, which has representative character in all the three regions of the state. “The Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is committed to ensure equitable development of all the three regions,” he said. Nazir said party leadership restored democratic rights of the people. “Nobody can forget the contribution of Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, who gave voting rights to the people to choose their leaders”.
