Modi furious over Abdullah’s comment of separate PM, President for J&K

Prime Minister Narendra Modi furiously attacked National Conference leader Omar Abdullah’s comment on Monday asking Congress to explain its ally’s comment that one day Jammu and Kashmir will have a separate President and a separate Prime Minister.

Without naming the National Conference leader he said, “He says we will fake the clock back and replicate the situation before 1953 and there will be two Prime Ministers in India, Kashmir will have its separate PM.”

Modi added Congress need to give an answer to the comment of its ally as how the leader can say such a thing.

Abdullah addressed a rally in Bandipore of south Kashmir and said if Article 35A is scrapped the state would have its own PM and Sadr e Reyasat.

The state had conditioned its accession with Union of India citing to have its own identity and constitution.

Abdullah said if the Article 35 is scrapped the country need to renegotiate accession.

A tweet of Abdullah read, “Dear friends in the Congress & other opposition parties. Please don’t hesitate to distance yourselves from my speech of today. In fact call Modi ji’s bluff by doing exactly that.”

Lately huge controversy has come up with legal challenges to Article 35A. Most of the political parties in Jammu and Kashmir wants to preserve it while BJP is looking to scrap it.

About a month ago Union Minister Arun Jaitley said it was neither part of Indian Constitution framed by the constituent assembly and nor incorporated as a constitutional amendment under Article 368 of the Constitution.
