New Delhi: Lok Sabha MP and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah has arrived in Delhi to attend the Monsoon Session of Parliament beginning on Monday, his first visit to the National Capital after the abrogation of provisions of Article 370.

The National Conference president, who arrived on Sunday, is likely to be in focus since he was under detention during the last two sessions.

On 5 August last year, a bill for re-organisation of Jammu and Kashmir was tabled in Parliament and the 82-year-old was taken into preventive custody.

The veteran politician from the Kashmir valley is keen to raise the Jammu and Kashmir issue during this session, party leaders said.

The 18-day Monsoon Session, which begins Monday, will last till 1 October. The last session was short-terminated on 25 March, following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
