Mufti says modi assured her of saving J&K special status

"The central government should tell the court that we are not going to touch the status of the articles, will deal the matter politically", he added.

The Election Commission (EC) was yet to take a call on when the Anantnag Lok Sabha by-poll would be held as the security scenario in the Jammu and Kashmir district there was not considered conducive, an official said.

Er. Rasheed asked Mehbooba Mufti either to talk with confidence, courage, facts and sincerity or "must break her alliance with the BJP as it has given Sang Parivar an upper hand in destroying and misleading the facts about J&K dispute". "If the GoI will scrap the Article 35-A then whole Article 370 will collapse its own".

Political scientist, Prof Gull Wani, said in the present day society, there are very few democratic voices in India to speak for Kashmiris as there has been a change of character across India.

Those who want the abrogation of the Presidential order of 1954 can't see the wood for the trees. 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.

It has been 70 years since Article 370 was imposed on J&K. She further said that the basis of her PDP's alliance with the BJP is that the "status quo of 370 has to be maintained".

They will because they have nurtured separatists for their political gains.

As the Supreme Court debates the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, the state Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, on Friday, met Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking help against attempts to alter the Article 35 A that gives the princely a special status. Speaker Kavinder Gupta who calls himself a proud RSS man was quick to constitute a panel on the violation of special status provisions and senior officers of the Geology and Mining Department were suspended.

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

Meanwhile, reports said that during her meeting with PM Modi she complained about the "arrogant attitude" Power Minister Piyush Goal regarding the transfer of two hydro-electric projects back to J&K.

Mehbooba met opposition National Conference president Farooq Abdullah earlier this week to seek the support of his party on the issue. The facts and opinions appearing in the article do not reflect the views of NDTV and NDTV does not assume any responsibility or liability for the same.
