Countering former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s claim that Article 35A does not allow any gender discrimination, the BJP today “reminded” the National Conference (NC) leader that spouses and children of local women married outside J&K are not entitled to the status of state subject unlike men who marry non-state subjects.In a statement issued here today, state BJP spokesman Virendra Gupta said the state subject law and Article 35A not only allows discrimination on the basis of gender but also violates Articles 14 and 16 of the Indian Constitution. He also raised the issue of stringent conditions that had been imposed by the state government for getting state subject certificates issued in favour of bonafide persons.
