President of the National Conference (NC) and former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah on Monday said the resolve of people of Jammu and Kashmir for restoration of Article 370 will continue, even if he (Abdullah) is dead.
Dr Abdullah was on Monday summoned and later questioned for about seven hours by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), in connection with the multi-crore scam in Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA), when he was the president of the association.
Talking to reporters, after his questioning by the ED at Raj Bagh office during the day, Dr Abdullah said, ‘Let the ED do their job and I will do my job.’
In reply to a question, he said he was quite clear and will always face them (ED). However, he immediately added that his fate will be decided by the court, when they put up the case there (court).
When a reporter asked if he believe that he was summoned by the ED because of formation of Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration, Dr Abdullah said, ‘Do not bring the Gupkar into this’.
To another question on whether the ED questioning would weaken his resolve to fight for seeking restoration of Article 370, Dr Abdullah said it was not only his resolve, but the resolve of people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The fight for restoration of Article 370 will continue, whether he is dead or alive, added Dr Abdullah.
