Srinagar: National Conference President Farooq Abdullah has said that if the Article 370 of the Indian Constitution is temporary so is the accession of JK with the Union of India.
“If the Article is temporary, so is the accession. When Hari Singh decided to accede to India, it was temporary. Moreover, it was also decided that a plebiscite will happen in which the people will decide weather they want to go with India or Pakistan. That didn’t happen, so how can they remove this Article.
Abdullah also reacted to the statement of Ram Madhav that National Conference and Congress are responsible for militancy in the state.
“They (BJP) are the real ghosts. What did they do after they got into an alliance with the PDP. They have destroyed the state. They are targetting us because they know that National Conference is coming back into power. And we showed them that in the recent polls,” he said.
Recently, Home Minister of India Amit Shah had said that the Article 370 is temporary and the Government will take appropriate action on appropriate time.
Moreover, BJP’s National Secretary Ram Madhav had said that the Article 370 has to go ‘ ‘lock, stock and barrel’ as was mentioned by the Home Minister of India Amit Shah in the Lok Sabha.
Earlier, Minister of State (PMO) Jitendra Singh had said that had the first Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru allowed the then Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel handle Jammu and Kashmir like other princely states, not only the history of Kashmir but the entire sub continent would have been different.
