BJP goes defensive over Art. 35A

BJP goes defensive over Art. 35A

Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had assured her that there would be no fiddling with the special status of the state. Following this agreement, the term "state subject" was replaced by "Permanent Residents", and the President of India in consultation with the state government issued the constitution order of 1954 and Article 35A was incorporated.

Article 35 A of the Indian constitution confers special rights and privileges on permanent residents of Indian-controlled Kashmir, debarring residents from other Indian states from buying land or property, getting a government job or voting in the local elections. "And that identity should always remain alive", said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader who heads a coalition government with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Officials in the home ministry had said yesterday that its law officers would be presenting legal aspects related to Article 35A only and would refrain from joining the case. Fundamental rights are also part of the basic structure of the Indian Constitution, which can not be amended at all as the apex court has stated. Article 35A was not introduced in isolation.

"However, we want that State's special status must go for its complete integration with India", he said.

The Union government has rightly parted ways with the state government in front of the Supreme Court.

'I'm on fire' - Man United boss Mourinho ready for title challenge
Mourinho has spent £147 million to bring Romelu Lukaku , Nemanja Matic and Lindelof to Old Trafford . He said: "To buy lots of good players is important".

He said the debate over Article 35A was neither Hindu versus Muslims nor Jammu versus Kashmir.

In 2014, an NGO had filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking the striking down of Article 35-A. 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. Moreover, the Article 370 is part of the original constitution, and hence, the Article 35A also flows from it. She added that Mr Modi "gave 100 per cent assurance on the agenda of alliance".

They also lashed out at the puppet Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, saying that she used to visit the bereaved families of martyrs, especially in south Kashmir, and shed tears, but after assuming power she had become the most brutal and had defeated all previous records of oppression and tyranny in the occupied territory.

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