NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 31— Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P. Chidambaram on Tuesday sent his first greetings for the New Year to incarcerated politicians and civic leaders of Jammu and Kashmir who are behind bars since August 5 this year when the Article 370 was abrogated and the state was bifurcated into two union territories.

 

“Our first greetings for the New Year must go to Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and other leaders detained in J&K since August 5 without any charge. May the New Year bring them freedom and justice!” tweeted Chidambaram Tuesday morning.

 

In his next tweet, he greeted all people for the New Year and stressed that struggle for freedom is a never-ending struggle.

 

“I offer my greetings to all the people for the New Year. The New Year begins with a reminder that the struggle for freedom is a never-ending struggle and 'eternal vigilance is the price of liberty',” said Chidambaram.

 

Chidambaram himself was released after 106 days in jail on December 4 following the Supreme Court granting him bail in a case registered by the Enforcement Directorate in the INX Media scam.
