National Conference Working President Mr Omar Abdullah on Friday sought a special session of Jammu and Kashmir Legislature before 29th August to frame up an appropriate response to counter the narrative with regard to tampering or repealing of Article 35A of the Constitution.
“And, in such a precarious situation, the State Legislature will have to take a call on this fundamental issue, especially as the Constitution empowers the Legislative Assembly to determine the issues with regard to permanent residence”, Mr Omar Abdullah said while appreciating general consensus across the state, irrespective of caste, creed, religion or region, with regard to preserving of this significant constitutional guarantee bestowed upon Jammu and Kashmir by Constitution of India.
“It is therefore appropriate to have the aspirations of the people reflected through the State Legislature”, he said.
The Working President hoped that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will rise above party politics and fight every overt or covert attempts to trample with Article 35A, which is regional neutral, religious neutral and ethnic neutral. He said abrogation of this proviso is detrimental to every segment of society in Jammu and Kashmir.
