Mufti says modi assured her of saving J&K special status

Mufti says modi assured her of saving J&K special status”

After Rajnath Singh met CM Mehbooba Mufti, the Home Ministry officials said that that its law officers would be presenting legal aspects related to Article 35A only and would refrain from joining the case.

The party's demand comes in the wake of a debate over Article 35 (A) that allows the state legislature to define the list of "permanent residents" and their special rights and privileges. The contention that the President doesn't have authority to introduce law outside Article 370 would mean that Presidential order of 1954 is ultra virus and the people of Jammu and Kashmir continue to remain "protected subjects" of the state and not citizens of India. "He is creating a fear psychosis", BJP state spokesperson Anil Gupta said, adding, "His statement - Jammu will be affected far more than Kashmir since no outsider will like to settle there but will flock in hordes to settle in Jammu - clearly indicates the mindset of his party that has always advocated politics of exclusion". "What happened to her claims of starting talks with separatists, opening roads with Pakistan and self-rule?"

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday amid reports that she was seeking help against attempts to alter Constitutional provisions that give special status to the state.

"Omar sahib is right in saying that Mehbooba is fighting for the special status with us and enjoying the power with BJP that is bent upon abrogating this status", Kamal said.

The separatists said strike was also against killing of Kashmiris by army. The memorandum also focuses on sensitizing the Kashmiri people about the grave dangers and consequences of the proposed abrogation by using service of Imams, Pujaris, Granthis, and priests across the State. "The time has come when the people of Jammu & Kashmir should say goodbye to Article 370 and ask the government of India to revoke Article 35 A", he said.

A fresh debate over the continuation of the article has been generated after a Delhi-based NGO recently challenged its validity in the Supreme Court. It also made a decision to appeal to the legal luminaries of occupied Kashmir to rise to the occasion and fight the case in Indian Supreme Court and engage the services of competent lawyers if necessary. After the meeting, Mehbooba Mufti said that she discussed host of issues including Article 35A with the Prime Minister.
