‘Want to walk without security in Valley’, say Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday said that he wants to walk and move freely without any security, hoping that India and Pakistan find out early and one time solution to Kashmir issue.

“I see a change between the Indian and Pakistani leaders. I am quite confident that time has come and that is why probably God has kept me alive to see solution emerging to this problem of our state and I hope we have peace which we all want,” he was quoted as having said.

Referring to J&K Bank controversy, he said that the moves to take over the institution have been in pipeline for a long time and that they succeeded when governor was in control here.

“The moves to take over the J&K Bank have been in pipeline for a long time. They haven’t succeeded till then but probably in the governor’s rule they thought they will succeed,” said Abdullah.
