Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Monday said that those out to defend Section Article 35-A were tacitly accepting that future of the state lies within the Constitution of India.
Taking to social networking site Twitter, Omar wrote: “Protecting #Article35A is a tacit acceptance that J&K’s future lies within the Constitution of India, otherwise how would it matter if it were struck down or diluted.”
“Kashmir has shut down to protect a provision of the Indian constitution. When was the last time anyone was able to frame that headline? #Article35A,” Omar wrote.
