New Delhi:

Lok Sabha MP and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah arrived in Delhi on Sunday to attend the Monsoon Session of Parliament beginning today, his first visit to the national capital after the abrogation of Article 370.

The National Conference president is likely to be in focus since he was under detention during the last two sessions.

On August 5 last year, a bill for re-organisation of Jammu and Kashmir was tabled in Parliament and the 82-year-old was taken into preventive custody.

The veteran politician from the Kashmir valley is keen to raise the Jammu and Kashmir issue during this session, party leaders said.

The 18-day Monsoon Session, which begins Monday, will last till October 1. The last session was short-terminated on March 25, following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
