Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and Democratic Progressive Azad Party chief, Ghulam Nabi Azad, on Sunday said those opposing the abrogation of Article 370 are ignorant of the history and geography of the Union territory.
Addressing a rally in North Kashmir's Gurez, the chairman of the Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) said elections are the only panacea for all the ills of the Union territory.
Those who deserted the DAP include Nizamuddin Khatana, Gulzar Ahmad Khatana whom AICC leadership welcomed at the party office.
Azad said that life is more important than employment and the government should transfer Kashmiri Pandits to Jammu.
These three persons were among the first to quit Congress and join Azad's party.
Months after exiting the decades-long association with the Congress party, Azad said that he was not against its policy of secularism, but its weak party system.
Pilot said, "Congress is an old party with the same rules for everyone, no matter how senior. I believe, Kharge Ji will soon take action."
