J&K Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed urged people to protect Article 370 of the Indian Constitution which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir. He said that the J&K Assembly is the powerful institution which has the prerogative to accept or reject the laws passed in the Indian parliament.
Mufti’s assertions were followed by the recent reports indicating that an RSS backed think tank is set to challenge Article 35A, an extension of Article 370, in the Supreme Court. While addressing the gathering, CM said, “Your vote is powerful and if you wish to safeguard J&K’s identity and special status, use this vote which has brought us to power.”
He added that J&K’s Assembly is the most powerful in entire India and has the power and prerogative to accept or reject any law passed in the Indian parliament. J&K has a separate constitution, separate flag and a separate identity, he added. In context of Modi Sharif meeting, he said that talk is the only solution to that.
