Kargil, Ladakh:

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Friday, making a pitch against the revocation of Article 370, said that the "fight is not against the country but against BJP and its ideology".

"Our fight is not against the country but against BJP and its ideology. BJP is not the country and vice versa. What we want back was written in the Constitution. We will not step back in our fight," Omar Abdullah told reporters after meeting local leaders in Kargil.
