Farooq roars about tampering with Article 370
11/22/2017 10:57:56 PM
Though Prime Minister Narendra Modi,
has assured Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, that the Government of India had no plans of either diluting or repealing Article 370,which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir within the Union Of India, Dr Farooq Abdullah continues to roar against the changes in the Article 370. He is right when he said that Kashmir will experience the worst ever crisis if Article 370 was touched or abrogated. Even Article 35-A is sacred in the eyes of people of Kashmir and they do not want the state subject law to be either diluted or changed. And Farooq Abdullah insists on his oft repeated assertion that India cannot secure incorporation of Occupied Kashmir from Pakistan and the only alternative for both the sides was to allow Pakistan to retain occupied Kashmir and India to hace legal and constitutional sway on Jammu and Kashmir. He is neither afraid of court cases against him on alleged charge of adopting anti-India stance when he has been in the forefront of those who defend Jammu and Kashmir's accession with India.
Defending his assertion for internal autonomy to both parts of divided Kashmir without obliterating the Line of Control (LoC), National Conference (NC) President Farooq Abdullah has said.
"If India wants to liberate the PoK, let it move towards the LoC with guns," adding that wars were no solution as these bring only death and destruction. Abdullah also reiterated his demand for grant of regional autonomy to different regions in Jammu and Kashmir to assuage the aspirations of people."J&K is a unique state and needs special dispensation in terms of regional autonomy to satiate the urges of various regions," he said. This way he has given a sound suggestion because linguistically, climatically and as per the demography is concerned the regions of Ladakh and Jammu are different from the Kashmir valley But his suggestion may lead to disintegration of India because many more states may not shirk in launching an agitation for securing regional autonomy. Even the demand for autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir may be fraught with the danger of disintegrating the nation.
Article 370 and Article 35-A are constitutional provisions and it depends on the parliament to either retain it or do away with it. However, Farooq Abdullah is right when he says it may lead to unknown crisis in Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in the Kashmir valley. It is time for the BJP led NDA Government to adopt reticence on the issue. Farooq lambasts BJP over the issue of Article 370 adding that the BJP has its main agenda of abrogating the special status granted under Article 370.The Government of India should realize that nothing special has been left as far as Article 370 is concerned. The jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, Comp roller and Auditor General of India and the Election Commission has been extended to Jammu and Kashmir besides several hundred central laws. The application of central laws to the state of Jammu and Kashmir has been a simple affair as the state legislature is empowered to grant or withhold its approval. For extending several cetral laws. Even the GST has been extended though the state claims that it has its own GST. No need to fight with Farooq who has the art of triggering violence when it is known that he is doing so simply to regain power. The Delhi High Court today refused to pass any order on a PIL seeking action against National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah over his alleged remarks on Pakistan occupied Kashmir. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar directed the petitioner to approach the ministry concerned, which will decide the issue on merits. The court was hearing a plea filed by Delhi-based Maulana Ansar Raza, who claims to be a social activist, seeking "immediate investigation" and "arrest" of the Srinagar MP alleging that he has favoured Pakistan and insulted India.
