We have placed five demands before the government including holding early elections and restoring statehood to the state, said veteran Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad. He further said “most J&K leaders said a decision on Article 370 should be left to the Supreme Court”.

Four Chief Ministers of Jammu and Kashmir – Farooq Abdullah, his son Omar Abdullah , Ghulam Nabi Azad and Mehbooba Mufti participated in the discussions.

Four former deputy Chief Ministers – Tara Chand, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, Nirmala Singh and Kavinder Gupta. The leaders who attended the meeting demanded for J&K’s statehood.
