Both former Jammu and Kashmir chief ministers were detained after the government abrogated Article 370 last year.

The Home Minister assured that the lower house that political leaders, who are currently in jail, will be released only by the local administration and the government will not interfere in their decision.

Farooq Abdullah and his son and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah were detained after the repeal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. A delegation of National Conference leaders had met them earlier this month.

As political parties came down heavily on Governor Satya Pal Malik and the Centre for putting these leaders under house arrest, the Raj Bhavan said that such decisions are taken by the local police administration and the Governor had no role to play in it.

Masoodi said that everything is "meaningless" as Article 370, 35A and special status are the "primary importance" for the party.

Farooq and his son Omar Abdullah are under preventive detention following the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5.

Farooq Abdullah, his son Omar Abdullah, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and various local leaders were taken into custody following the abrogation of provisions of Article 370

It should be noted that a total of 30 more leaders across the party lines have been named as the members of this Committee.
