SRINAGAR: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s meet in Vrindavan has discussed the issue of Kashmir autonomy at length, reports in media suggest. The three-day meeting of RSS and the Parivaar is aimed at preparing a roadmap for 2019 general elections.
Apart from RSS top leaders, the conclave is being attended by Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley and UP Chief Minister Adityanath.
“The RSS has called for intensifying efforts for creating a countrywide consensus against Article 35 A of the Constitution that grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir,” a news portal reported. “With the Supreme Court slated to hear a petition challenging the provision later in November, RSS affiliate Jammu and Kashmir Study Centre has planned a series of events in various educational campuses across the country about the perils of the ‘unconstitutional ” article that empowers the state legislature to enact rules providing special rights and privileges to permanent residents of the state.”

During its first ever conclave in Jammu in July, it had called for firmly dealing with the separatists.”
