Srinagar, June 27
Senior Congress leader Saifuddin Soz has said the abrogation of Article 370, which accorded special status to Jammu and Kashmir, is a big mistake of the Central Government.
“While the Home Minister Amit Shah is free to say what he said recently on our internal autonomy as enshrined by Article 370 of the Constitution, the fact remains that the abrogation of the special status unilaterally is a very big mistake on the part of India,” Soz said in a statement.
He said Shah’s assertion that Article 370 was the root of terror in J&K was not based on facts. “He (Shah) has not offered even a single fact in support of his assessment,” the former union minister said.
“It is not enough for him (the Home Minister) that he received an ovation from the Prime Minister,” he added. — PTI
