PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said her party would continue to struggle for the restoration of J&K’s special status and asserted that India and Pakistan would have to sit across the dialogue table to resolve all outstanding issues, including Kashmir.

At a party function here, the former J&K CM said the special status to the erstwhile state was given by the Constitution of India.

“This position was not given by China or Pakistan. Why is the BJP government pained when we seek its restoration? We had acceded to India on certain conditions and one of them was to protect our identity,” she said.

Mehbooba asserted the Centre would have to restore the special status. “If you care about the people of J&K, you will have to return what you have snatched from us,” she said. — PTI
