Today, Amit Shah said that the national conference patriarch 'Farooq Abdullah' was not arrested or detained in the house. The 81 years of Farooq Abdullah has not been in the house since Monday when the government announced the end of the state's unique status and that it would be divided into two union territories.
During the discussion of reorganization bill of Jammu and Kashmir in the Lok Sabha, Supriya Sule the leader of National Congress pointed Farooq’s absence and said Farooq Abdullah sit next to her and that day he was not there.
Dayanidhi Maran said Farooq Abdullah is the member of this House and he was missing. He was arrested and they had no intimation. You as a Speaker should protect the members. You should be neutral.
