“The question is not only about abrogating Article 370. It was done in inhuman manner,” Ms Matondkar said.
NEW DELHI — Actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar, who joined the Indian National Congress in March this year, on Thursday hit out at the Centre over the security clamp-down in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370.
Addressing the media she expressed her personal ordeal and said her husband, Mohsin Akhtar Mir has not been able to speak to his parents for the last 22 days, she said.
Her husband is a businessman hailing from Kashmir and his parents are settled there only.
“The question is not only about abrogating Article 370. It was done in inhuman manner,” Ms Matondkar, who contested the Lok Sabha election unsuccessfully, told reporters.
“My father-in-law and mother-in-law stay there. Both are diabetic, have high blood pressure. Today is the 22nd day, neither I nor my husband have been able to speak to them. We have no clue if they have medicines available at home,” she said.
Urmila Matondkar contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Mumbai North, but lost the seat to BJP candidate Gopal Shetty with a margin of 4,65,247 votes.
