J&K was better off before Article 370 was abrogated: Azad

We were told that the scenario in J&K will change after the abrogation of Article 370. The growth, hospitals, unemployment will be taken care of. However that has not happened and as a matter of fact we we far better when it was being ruled by various CMs, Azad told ANI. We are a great loser after the state was divided into two UTs.
