Sections of BJP, RSS unhappy over Narendra Modi’s invitation to JK politicians for All-Party Meet

New Delhi: As politicians from Jammu and Kashmir have reached New Delhi and are scheduled to participate in Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi led All Party Meet today, sections of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its ideological fount, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), are unhappy over the talks on Jammu and Kashmir being held under the shadow regional parties sticking to their demand for the restoration of the Article 370.

This is the first such meeting after Jammu and Kashmir was stripped of its statehood and semi-autonomous status and divided into two union territories- JK and Lakdakh.

As per a report published in Hindustan Times, the timing of the meeting has raised eyebrows in the party and the Sangh. The report quoting sources aware of the matter, said that it is felt the GoI after opting for a muscular Kashmir policy seems to have climbed down from its position of not engaging with parties if they seek the restoration of Article 370. The Article gave the erstwhile state a special status and Article 35 (A) defined domicile rules.
