BJP for early abrogation of Articles 370, 35A: Raina

Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina Sunday said his party is for early abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution.

  He also exhorted 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-administered Kashmir and revoking of the cumbersome M-Form exercise for Kashmiri migrant pandits before the next assembly polls.

“Article 370, a temporary transititional 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,” Raina told reporters here.
