Referring to Apni Party leaders’ meeting with the Prime Minister, Bukhari said “We met the honourable Prime Minister after the abrogation of Article 370 and that too in broad day light. We made the and made the central government leaders to give rights to J&K people on jobs and rights. Had we not done so, this all land would have been bought by Indian capitalists by now and all our jobs would not have been our’s," he said.

The Apni Party President said his party never sought votes for protecting the rights of J&K people." But right now we appeal you to reject these traditional parties in these elections. They have been befooling the people since 1947. Sheikh (Mohammad Abdullah) sahab in assembly had stated that Article 370 is not a sacred book, which cannot be touched or changed. If was the view of NC from very beginning why is it now trying to exploit the sentiments of people now after the abrogation of Article 370," he said.
