Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti is relied upon to leave for New Delhi on Thursday in the midst of a level headed discussion on an article in the Constitution which awards special privileges to the state.
Mehbooba will touch New Delhi tomorrow morning and probably be going to approach the Prime Minister and some Ministers to brief them on most recent developments including concerns voiced by political parties on Article 35A.
In spite of the fact that Article 35A would command Mehbooba’s gatherings with the Prime Minister and other Central leaders, some other Jammu and Kashmir particular issues could likewise be talked about.
Article 35A, added to the Indian Constitution through a presidential request of 1954, enables the Jammu and Kashmir legislature to characterize the state’s “permanent residents” and their special rights and privileges.
At a current event in Delhi, Mufti said if Article 35A was tinkered with, there will be nobody in Kashmir to maintain the national flag.
The confinement on pariahs from purchasing property in Jammu and Kashmir was viewed as the foundation of the state’s special status. It is a statement that the BJP – which is in control in alliance with Mehbooba Mufti-drove Peoples Democratic Party, or PDP – has since quite a while ago requested ought to be evacuated.
Recently, Mehbooba had approached National Conference president and previous Chief Minister Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah at their residence and advised them on steps being taken by the State Government to guard Article 35A in the Supreme Court. Today, she met three other senior Opposition leaders and shared with them the same preparation.
Political spectators say the Chief Minister’s effort to the opposition had again uncovered the genuine blame lines inside PDP-BJP alliance. A month ago, when Kashmiri separatist leaders including Shabir Shah were captured and sent-off to Delhi to confront a terror funding case, Ms Mufti had made it clear that such authoritative activity would not help take care of the issues in Kashmir and supported discourse with all stakeholders including the Hurriyat.
