Amid Article 35-A row, Mehbooba calls on Farooq Abdullah

Former HoD JU Law Department, Prof K.L Bhatia speaking at a seminar on ‘Article 35A-Boon or Curse for Jammu

The Centre, whenever such an eventuality has arisen in past in the apex court, has always defended the case of the Jammu and Kashmir.

Article 35A, obscure compared to the more commonly discussed Article 370, definitely has them speaking in one voice, warning of dire consequences if its abrogation is attempted. India's Attorney-General KK Venugopal has told the Supreme Court that the Indian government wants a larger debate on the Article.

Article 35A is an overriding provision to Article 35.

Both these articles, instead of being beneficial to the people of the state, have done a great damage and hamper progress and development, claimed J-K BJP spokesperson Virender Gupta.

"...the article [35A] does not by itself confer any right on J&K state subjects". The descendants of emigrants are defined as subjects for 2 generations'.

"Laws passed by Parliament apply here only after state assembly analyses them properly and sees if they are beneficial to us".

How is Article 35A different from Article 370?

She added that "The pledge which was carried out in the Presidential order on GST would return the special status Jammu and Kashmir enjoy within the Constitution of India". The Agenda of Alliance, working document of PDP-BJP coalition seeks continuation of status quo on the issue of the special status of the state of J&K. It asked whether the J&K Constitution, which neither got the mandatory assent or approval of the President of India, was valid at all. "You are (the Centre) weakening them".

It is not just the opposition in Jammu and Kashmir that has criticised the Centre's statements. "The Permanent Resident Act forms the core of J&K's special status within the Union". The point being that the change will let Hindus settle down in the state.

According to reports, Abdullah has suggested to the chief minister that she should consult other parties with an aim to create a wider consensus among "like-minded parties in the battle to prevent Article 35A being struck down in the Supreme Court".

How is it discriminatory to women?

The provision prohibits all Indians - except people from Jammu and Kashmir - from purchasing immovable property in the state, getting government jobs and availing state-sponsored scholarship schemes.

The bench was also slighted by the response of the state regarding the issue in an affidavit which enumerated several other preoccupations as a reason for not filing its reply.
