Taking a jibe at MoS Home Hansraj Ahir over his comment that Pakistan Administered Kashmir (PaK) is part of India according to Instrument of Accession, former chief minister Omar Abdullah asked what about the part guaranteeing Jammu and Kashmir’s autonomy.
Abdullah, who is the working president of Jammu and Kashmir National Conference, further said the Instrument of Accession that made Jammu and Kashmir a part of the Union of India kept all powers with the state barring Currency, Communication, Defence and Foreign Affairs.
“I love how when it suits them they quote the Instrument of Accession signed by the Maharaja. What about the part guaranteeing J&K’s autonomy?” Abdullah wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
The NC working president said, “You can’t pick the parts of the Instrument of Accession that suit the politics of the BJP while conveniently abrogating responsibility for the rest.
