Revocation of Article 370 Unconstitutional, Says Priyanka


New Delhi:Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday said that the manner in which the BJP-led central government had moved to revoke Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir was “completely unconstitutional” and “against all the principles of democracy”.

There are rules to be followed when such things are done, which were not followed, she said, taking the Congress party’s stand.

The court, while hearing a petition filed by political analyst Tehseen Poonawalla, said they were fortunate that not one death had taken place and it was important to rely on the government and give them some time.
