SRINAGAR, August 21: A day before the government ended special status to Jammu and Kashmir in August last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given no indication of the move, Farooq Abdullah said today. “Nobody can trust the government of India anymore. There is not a day when they don’t lie,” said the National Conference MP, in his first interview since his release from detention NDTV reported.
“It just came out of the blue. I had met the PM a day before, he had given us no indication. I told him so many troops had been moved in, what was the need? Tourists were being pushed out, the (Amarnath) yatra had been cancelled. All this was strange…as if it was war with Pakistan or something,” Farooq Abdullah said.
“When we asked the PM, he didn’t say anything. But he said other things that I don’t think I should say at this point. He was absolutely kind and nice and unbelievable.” NDTV reported.
