BJP for early abrogation of Articles 370, 35A, says J&K BJP president

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 26: J&K BJP president Ravinder Raina today said his party is for early abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution.
He also expressed confidence that the BJP will form the next government in the State on its own.
Raina said his party will work for defreezing of the eight Assembly seats reserved for refugees from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and revoking of the cumbersome M-Form exercise for Kashmiri migrant pandits before the next Assembly polls.
"Article 370, a temporary transitional provision, is the biggest injustice with the people of Jammu and Kashmir, while the Article 35A is a constitutional blunder which was included through back door without the consent of Parliament and the president...We wish the early abrogation of both these constitutional provisions," Mr. Raina told reporters in Jammu.
Article 370 grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir. Article 35A empowers the State Assembly to define 'permanent residents' for bestowing special rights and privileges on them.
On May 24, National Conference president Farooq Abdullah said Prime Minister Narendra Modi cannot remove Article 35A and Article 370 of the Constitution. "Let him be as powerful as he (Mr. Modi) likes, he cannot remove Article 370 and Article 35A (from the State of Jammu and Kashmir)," Mr. Abdullah had said, adding "our right of Article 370 and Article 35A should be protected. This is very important for us. We are soldiers of this country, not enemies".
Accusing Kashmir-based politicians of "misleading" the people of the State on these articles, Mr. Raina said Article 370 is a "wall of hatred" and the main reason for the prevailing situation in the Jammu and Kashmir.
"Both the provisions have to go. Article 35A is discriminatory in nature as if (former Chief Minister) Omar Abdullah marries outside the State, his wife is entitled to various rights under these articles but when his sister Sara married Sachin pilot, she lost all her rights over property in the State," he said.
Mr. Raina said the BJP from the days of the Jana Sangh and the Praja Parishad under the leadership of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and others fought against these articles of the Constitution which are "not good for the State".
"Due to these articles, near about 100 families have looted all other families of the state for decades together," he alleged.
Buoyed by the success of retaining the three Lok Sabha seats in Jammu and Ladakh regions, Mr. Raina expressed confidence that the BJP will win the upcoming Assembly polls in the State with a "thumping majority".
"With the bumper support, the masses have made it clear that the BJP is going to win more than 50 seats in the next Assembly elections and will form the next government on its own strength. The next Chief Minister will be of the BJP," he said.
