Scrapping of Article 370 and revoking the special status of Jammu and Kashmir is a move in which the Constitution of India has been ignored, said Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. According to her, the move by the Narendra Modi government to bring Jammu and Kashmir at par with the rest of India was carried out in an undemocratic fashion.
“The manner in which it has been done is completely unconstitutional and it’s against all the principles of democracy, there are rules to be followed when such things are done, which were not followed,” Priyanka told news agency ANI.
Article 370 and 35A were scrapped on August 6, 2019, following President Ram Nath Kovind signing the gazette after the resolution was passed by the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. Jammu and Kashmir was also divided into two Union Territories. One Union Territory is Jammu and Kashmir with an assembly while Ladakh is another but without an assembly.
Priyanka Gandhi’s brother and former Congress president Rahul Gandhi too has been targeting the Modi government for abrogating Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.
