On October 17, Hussain had attacked the Congress, saying it was advocating the restoration of Article 370 if it came to power. Speaking to media persons, Hussain had said the Congress and other partners in the Mahagathbandhan should clarify their position on fielding Maskoor Usmani, a former Aligarh Muslim University student union leader, from the Jale seat.
Usmani, a native of Darbhanga, had been booked under sedition charges in 2019, for allegedly raising anti-national slogans. “Does the Mahagathbandhan endorse the ideology of Jinnah?” Hussain had asked.
Referring to article 370, Shahnawaz said that PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti and NC leader Omar Abdullah conducted a joint press conference. “The Congress party is hand in glove with them. I want to point out at P. Chidambaram`s statement that advocates that Article 370 be restored,” Hussain had said.
Hussain had also attacked the Mahagathbandhan manifesto and said that Tejashwi Yadav wants to take the state`s development back by 15 years.
