National Conference trying to create fear psychosis over Article 35A: BJP

National Conference trying to create fear psychosis over Article 35A: BJP

Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given her "100 per cent assurance" that he would fully support the agenda of governance of the PDP-BJP combine in the state, which clearly mentions there will be no change with the current status of Article 370. He further wrote, "What she said is immaterial. That's the only part of this meeting that matters at all", Omar said in another tweet.

That Venugopal naturally was communicating to the court the stand of the BJP government - a party with which Mehbooba is running an always-on-the-edge coalition in J&K - is the reason being ascribed to the PDP chief's gesture towards her NC rival.

Rejecting Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's claim that Jammu and Kashmir is India's crown and people of the state have rejected two nation theory, Awami Ittehad Party Chief and MLA Langate Er.

She had met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday.

Government Medical Colleges in J&K do not have adequately experienced and qualified faculties of super specialties and even the doctors from other states are not recruited due to local Permanent Resident related laws that could be amended without any difficulty but are not amended, why?

"The government has been running in the state on the basis of Agenda of Alliance. None of us can go against that", Mufti had said earlier.

"By talking about accommodating idea of J&K in Idea of India she is forgetting the fact that New Delhi by its proxies and taking Supreme Court route is trying to bring Kashmiris to the back foot and also intends to seek bargaining power for the final resolution of J&K".

The BJP spokesperson asked if the NC leadership was so sure of the legal correctness of Article 35A, why are they resorting to agitational politics and provoking the Kashmiris?

It allows the Jammu and Kashmir legislature to define the list of "permanent residents" and their special rights and privileges.

Mehbooba is annoyed at a neutral stand taken by the Central government in the Supreme Court.

However a petition has recently been filed by right wing Hindu hardline Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) backed think tank, Jammu Kashmir Study Centre, challenging Article 35-A in India's top court.

The Kashmir University and Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education deferred the examinations which were scheduled to be held on Saturday.
