Fearing peoples' anger in coming elections Azad, other Cong leaders soften stand on Art 370

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 16: Fearing anger of the people in the forthcoming assembly elections in Haryana, Maharashtra and Jharkhand, Congress leadership has softened its stand on Article 370. Interestingly Leader of the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, who had been vociferously opposing scraping of Article 370, inside and outside the House, is now avoiding speaking on this issue and has shown flexibility on his earlier rigid stand.
Credible sources said that Congress leadership has realized that people across the country were unanimous in support of abrogating Article 370 and those opposing move of Centre would face wrath of common masses. It was all due this feedback the Congress has taken U turn on its previous stand. Parties like BSP and Aam Adami Party had also supported government's move.
Congress leaders on Sunday said at Delhi that issue of abrogation of Article 370 was over now and would be decided by the Court.
According to reports in a section of national media, Ghulam Nabi Azad, who all along led the party's offensive on Article 370, said on Sunday opposition to the move was now immaterial and Article 370 abrogation and removal of special provisions in J&K were law of the land.
Azad said, "A law has been made. The issue is out of the political ambit now. It's no longer in the realm of political parties."
Azad, who has been allowed by the Supreme Court on Monday to visit J&K, said, "My petition has nothing to do with Article 370 either. It is a personal petition, not the petition of the Congress. As an MP from J&K and a native of that state, I have moved the SC for permission to go there and have flagged the condition of labourers working in the state who need to earn daily wages to eat and live. No one is thinking about them."
Earlier many senior Congress leaders had supported abrogation of Article 370.
