He maintained that many people including founder of Bharatiya Jana Sangh and a great patriot Dr Shayama Prasad Mookherjee laid down their lives for the abrogation of the Article 370 and “we dedicate this day to their ultimate sacrifices,. I believe myself to be lucky enough that I got a chance to vote for the abrogation of Article 370 and thank people of Jammu-Poonch as they gave me this power with their votes”, Jugal added.
