HIGHLIGHT

  • Mufti said that the relationship between the Union and the state would be over if Article 370 of the Constitution is revoked
  • Arun Jaitley had advocated repeal of Jammu and Kashmir's special status and said Article 35A is "constitutionally vulnerable"

SRINAGAR: Hitting back at money serve Arun Jaitley for pushing nullification of unique status of Jammu and Kashmir, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said on Saturday that the connection between the Union and the state would be finished if Article 370 of the Constitution is denied. 

"Jaitley must get this. It's anything but a simple thing to state. On the off chance that you scrap (Article) 370, your connection with J&K will be finished," Mehbooba told party specialists at her home here. 

Jaitley had on Thursday upheld annulment of Jammu and Kashmir's uncommon status and said Article 35A, which limits non-changeless occupants to purchase property in Jammu and Kashmir, is "intrinsically helpless" and furthermore hampering financial improvement of the state. 

Mehbooba said Article 370 was a scaffold between the Union and the state and on the off chance that the unique arrangement of the Constitution was repudiated, at that point New Delhi would need to "renegotiate" its association with Jammu and Kashmir. 

The previous boss pastor has said on the off chance that Article 370 is denied, Jammu and Kashmir should reconsider whether it needs to remain with India. 

"In such a case that you have given us an exceptional position in the Constitution of India and you break that position, at that point we should reexamine whether we would even need to remain with you without conditions," she said. 

Prior, National Conference pioneer Mohammad Abdullah Wani and Awami Insaf Party boss Ghulam Ahmad Sheik Saloora joined the PDP, alongside their supporters. 

Wani and Saloora were invited into the gathering fold by Mehbooba and gathering supporter Muzaffar Hussain Beigh.
