This was an opportunity to publicly resume a dialogue that’s been happening behind the closed doors for some time now: Praveen Swami (Group Consulting Editor, Network18).The leaders of all the main political parties of Jammu & Kashmir are meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the first time after August 2019 when Article 370 was diluted. But prior to that, some people are knowingly creating an atmosphere that suggests that during this meeting Prime Minister Modi will announce the restoration of full statehood to Jammu & Kashmir or the parties will again raise the issue of restoring Article 370 in the state before him. Now the question is: given that the Union Territories have seen rapid development during the last two years, why such speculation is being purposefully fanned that will vitiate the situation on the ground. Could it be a conspiracy to destabilize Jammu and Kashmir again?THE ATTENDEESThe leaders of main political parties of Jammu & Kashmir are meeting PM Modi on Thursday at his residence. Among them will be National Conference leader and former J&K CM Farooq Abdullah who even had threatened to befriend China when Article 370 was abrogated. Mehbooba Mufti will also be there, who had said that if Article 370 is diluted, Kashmir will not be able to remain with India and it will be on fire.#NayaJammuKashmir #StatehoodToJ&K #CNNNews18Subscribe our channel for latest news updates: http://bit.ly/2KGXvAW#GetCloserToTheNews with latest headlines on politics, sports and entertainment on https://bit.ly/2Y4QccLTo stay updated on-the-go, download the News18 App: · Google Play Store: http://bit.ly/2VcRTRc· Apple App Store: https://apple.co/2JceAmY Follow us for latest news, photos & videos:· Facebook: http://bit.ly/2vOO22u· Twitter: http://bit.ly/2HdNKch· Instagram: http://bit.ly/2PRgfiz.
