Kashmir, 04 April: National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah on Thursday said cases registered against Jammu and Kashmir youth since 2015, after the PDP-BJP alliance came to power in the state, would be reviewed and the FIRs canceled if his party is voted to power.
Referring to the state’s accession with the Union of India, he said the NC wanted restoration of terms agreed upon by the two sides at that time.
Omar added “there are cases against our youth under which they are called to police stations even today. NC government will review each case, registered against youth since 2015 and in 2016 and cancel their FIRs so that our youth are set free,” he said.
"We will not even change its (PSA) nomenclature like the pen and inkpot people (party symbol of the PDP) did with the (special) task force. In 2002, Sayeed said they will disband the task force. But what did he do after he came to power? He changed its name but kept it as it was. It has the same functions and same officers, but a new name like old wine in new bottles," he said.
