Newspaper: Mehbooba opposes repeal of Kashmir's special status

"So the message that Jammu and Kashmir is the crown of India should be reiterated". On the face of it, this is a huge departure from Kashmir's predominant separatism which doesn't recognise the Indian Constitution. The Art 35A is in direct violation of the fundamental right as the non-resident Indian citizens can not have the rights and privileges, same as permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

"The BJP is trying to sell that the Dogras are with it in its demand for revocation of the Article 35A and gives it a communal and regional colour".

"We are part of India and we are Indians". Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said that there is an improvement in the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Provincial president Devender Singh Rana announced a campaign to educate people about benefits of Article 35A with the inauguration of a seminar by party working president Omar Abdullah here on August 14. All other matters including residuary powers are vested with the state. People of Jammu and Kashmir feel that their identity will be in danger.

The separatists said strike was also against killing of Kashmiris by army.

Article 35 (A) that gives special status to the state attacks the fundamental rights. "If the GoI will scrap the Article 35-A then whole Article 370 will collapse its own". After deliberations between the representatives of the state and the union, it was agreed that state subjects of J&K will also have citizenship of India.

The Kashmir officials say that most of the buses will stay off road special government buses but some private buses and other vehicles will be available to the public.

The NGO contended that the 1954 order was supposed to be a temporary provision. It is effectively linked to the larger of question of citizenship and applicability of constitutional provisions to people of the state as citizens of India.

In July, the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister warned that any change in Article 35 (A) of the Constitution, would not be in favour of the people living in the Valley and would invite repercussions. A permanent resident was defined as - A person who was born or settled in J&K before 1911 or has been resident in the state for 10 years after lawfully acquiring property in State.

The state BJP, an alliance partner in the state government, had upped the ante with its spokesperson Virendra Gupta saying yesterday that time had come to bid a farewell to Article 370 and Article 35A of the Constitution as they created a "separatist psyche".

They will because they have nurtured separatists for their political gains. In June 2016, the party's MLAs joined regional parties in the assembly and forced the government to cancel these contracts. "The Delhi-based media is projecting that by supporting Article 35A Kashmiris are being against rights of women etc".

The clock is ticking on the final disposal of the case against Article 35A.

The Centre would explain to the Supreme Court the legal aspects of Article 35A.

Mehbooba had met opposition National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah this week to seek the support of his party on the issue.
