Srinagar, Nov 3: National Conference (NC) patriarch and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, Farooq Abdullah, took a veiled dig at the current administration over the alleged sorry state of affairs in hospitals.
Addressing a press conference on Friday, the NC stalwart also pointed to alleged concerns over the supply of water and electricity in the Union Territory.
“Look at the condition of hospitals, there are no medicines, there is no electricity, water. I feel people across the country should stand up against this,” the NC patron said.
He said this after a meeting of several political leaders at his Srinagar residence on Friday.
NC Lok Sabha MP Hasnain Masoodi, former chief minister and People’s Democratic president Mehboob Mufti, and CPI(M) leader Yousuf Tarigami, among others, were present at the meeting.
