Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) vice-president, G N Monga, Monday claimed that the revocation of Article 35-A has neither any constitutional nor legal base.
“Article 35-A is not the only Presidential Order which has been implemented. If it is revoked on the pretext of being a Presidential Order, then all Presidential Orders will go as well,” Monga said in a statement.
He said that if the Centre fiddles with the states special status, they will be questioning the accession of the Jammu and Kashmir state with the Union. “It was a political issue settled long ago. Not only people of Kashmir, but of Jammu and Ladakh too will resist any move by the Centre to revoke Article 35-A,” he asserted.
The Congress leader also lashed out at the government for creating panic in Kashmir instead of clearing the confusion.
