Article 370: Congress warns of grave implications for Indian national security
August 6, 2019
NEW DELHI (92 News) – In India, the main Opposition Party Congress has warned that Modi government’s decision to end special status for Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the constitution will have grave implications for national security. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a tweet on Tuesday said National integration is not furthered by unilaterally tearing apart Jammu and Kashmir, imprisoning elected representatives and violating the Constitution. He said Indian nation is made by its people, not plots of land. “This abuse of executive power has grave implications for our national security,” he added. Meanwhile, during a debate on Indian government's abrupt decision on Jammu and Kashmir in Lok Shaba today, a Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury sought clarification on how the United Nations is monitoring Kashmir since 1948 if the region is an internal issue of India. He questioned that why India signed Shimla Agreement and Lahore Declaration, was that an internal matter or bilateral? He said the government had thrown rules and regulations out of the window by proposing to create two union territories out of Jammu and Kashmir. A day earlier, the Indian government rushed through a presidential decree to scrap a special status for Indian-held Jammu Kashmir, hours after imposing a major security clampdown in the region. Amit Shah has announced to abrogate Articles 370 and 35A from its constitution, which gives special status and rights to the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The announcement was made by Indian Home Minister Amit Shah while addressing in Rajya Sabha, upper house of Indian parliament. Amit Shah also announced that Jammu and Kashmir would be re-organized geographically. Amit Shah also announced that Jammu and Kashmir now a union territory with legislature,and it is no more a State. He also announced that Ladakh will also be union territory without legislature.
