Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Tuesday said that things will be back to normal in Jammu and Kashmir only after elections are held in the Union Territory and power is given to the people.
Speaking to ANI, Azad said, “If election happens (in Kashmir) and the power is given in the hands of people, then I believe all will be well.”
When asked about the ‘peace’ situation and ‘Kashmiriyat’, a term often used to describe the culture of brotherhood in Jammu and Kashmir, he said: “Kashmiriyat is there like it was there before. There is no change. People are the same. They still love each other. The same secularism and socialism exist there.”
Earlier this year, Home Minister Amit Shah had said that polls would be conducted after the delimitation exercise was over, following consultation with political parties.
