Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah Monday said that those out to defend Section Article 35-A were tacitly accepting that future of the state lies within the Constitution of India.
Taking to his twitter handle the vice president of national conference wrote,”Protecting #Article35A is a tacit acceptance that J&K’s future lies within the Constitution of India, otherwise how would it matter if it were struck down or diluted,”
In another tweet Omar wrote, ” Kashmir has shut down to protect a provision of the Indian constitution. When was the last time anyone was able to frame that headline? #Article35A
Omar was apparently referring to pro-freedom groups, who called for a two-day shutdown to protest against the legal challenge in the supreme court.
