Joint political parties will fail to restore Article 370
Kupwara: The Jammu and Kashmir unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Saturday termed the Gupkar declaration as mere drama and said that the joint parties will fail to restore article 370.
Talking to reporters on sidelines of an event organized by the party at TRC Kupwara, party’s state vice president, Sofi Yousuf as per news agency (KNO) said that the Gupkar declaration is mere a drama and they won’t succeed to restore article 370.
Terming the Gupkar declaration a drama, Sofi Yousuf said that it’s totally a drama and one of the leaders from national conference has said he won’t contest elections until the statehood is restored while prior to that they used to say how can the union government roll back the special provisions granted under Indian constitution that include article 370 and 35A.
He said now when the special provisions granted have been abrogated with Jammu and Kashmir part of one Indian constitution parties have started to befool people by coming together to restore the article 370 and 35A but “I reckon they won’t succeed in that and will fail,” Yousuf said.
Challenging the regional political parties, part of Gupkar declaration, he said if they dare all their member parliament’s (MPs) should resign and let them fight for the restoration of article 370.
Sofi said both prime minister and home minister of India have clearly said in parliament that the statehood will be restored only after the situation normalizes and improves and in case the union government (BJP), fails to do it I will be the first person to hit the roads to protest along with party workers.
He said Statehood will be restored after the delimitation process only while the team has been constituted for the same, adding that the “People in absence of elected government are suffering I admit that but after the delimitation elections will be held next year possibly”—(KNO)
