Rasheed seeks revocation of ban on student unions in his meeting with Governor

Srinagar: MLA Langate, Engineer Rasheed on Saturday, during his 45-minute long meeting with Governor Mr. N. N. Vohra expressed deep concern over the ‘conspiracy’ being created against Article 35-A by ‘certain sections’.

Article 35-A of the Indian Constitution is an article that empowers the Jammu and Kashmir state’s legislature to define “permanent residents” of the state and provide special rights and privileges to those permanent residents.

Rasheed told the Governor that “the sentiments of people over the issue and said that the said law is in practice since 19th century and it has nothing to do with a particular community or the region and it was the people of Jammu who persuaded the then Maharaja to form state subject laws and not allow anyone to purchase land in the state for the larger interest of people of the state.”
