Supreme Court will take decision on Article 35 (A): Nirmal Singh

Supreme Court will take decision on Article 35 (A): Nirmal Singh

Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given her "100 per cent assurance" that he would fully support the agenda of governance of the PDP-BJP combine in the state, which clearly mentions there will be no change with the current status of Article 370.

After the meeting, Ms. Mufti claimed Mr. Modi had assured that any discussion on the special provisions for the State would be on the basis of the Agenda of Alliance (AoA) between the PDP and the BJP. "There's hardly anything left in our special status, and if Article 35A is tampered with, we will cease to exist", she said after meeting the NC leaders.

"The idea of India has to accommodate the idea of Jammu and Kashmir", Mehbooba said, adding that Article 35A was one of the demands sought by Kashmiris before acceding to India. "That's the only part of this meeting that matters at all".

Er. Rasheed asked Mehbooba Mufti either to talk with confidence, courage, facts and sincerity or "must break her alliance with the BJP as it has given Sang Parivar an upper hand in destroying and misleading the facts about J&K dispute".

The J&K CM, while addressing reporters following the meet, said preservation of the Articles 370 and 35A is essential to maintain the faith of Kashmiris in the Indian political system. "None of us can go against that", Mufti had said earlier.

Here too it could be alleged that the powerful Kashmir valley leadership has used the PR law or existence of Art 35A just to project that J&K is distantly related to India.

Saifuddin Soz of the Congress has also endorsed the moves to build consensus: "The parties have adopted the right stance on Article 35A", he says. The party was reacting to a statement by the Jammu provincial president of the NC, Devinder Rana, on the issue of Article 35A of the Constitution, which defines the residency laws in Jammu and Kashmir and bars outsiders from buying any immovable property or applying for jobs in the state government.

The controversy erupted in 2014 after an NGO called We the Citizens filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking that Article 35A be struck down.

What seems to have triggered Mehbooba to make the hitherto unthinkable journey to Farooq Abdullah for his counsel is the Union government's recent submission in the Supreme Court during a hearing in the case.
