"I assure you that our party under the leadership of (chief minister) Omar Abdullah will never let anyone alter or abolish Article 370," NC provincial president, Kashmir, Nasir Aslam Wani said while addressing party workers at Shangus in south Kashmir's Anantnag district.

Wani said there are vested interests, who want to change the special status of the state and cautioned people not to "fall prey" to their "machinations".

The NC leader claimed that the opposition PDP can go to "any extent" to grab power and every time their attempt fails, it results in their "cheap theatrics".

"Do not go by their promises. False propaganda and divisive politics is the trait of PDP and it tries to survive on falsehood and blame game," he said.

He added that the NC represents the voice of people of the state and rendering public service equitably and holistically.
