Jaitley going berserk on Article-35A: Soz
Srinagar, March 30: Prof. Saifuddin Soz on Saturday said that it is not without reason that Arun Jaitley has decided to go whole-hog with PM Modi’s perception on political and social issues as he simply buttresses Modi’s perception, right or wrong.
In a statement issued here, Soz said: “Arun Jaitely’s belated interpretation of Article 35A of the Constitution of India evokes pity for him in people like me. I want to tell Arun Jaitley plainly that he has betrayed the trust of the people in his legal knowledge who understand that if this Article-35A was wrongly incorporated in the Presidential order, does he not, in the same breath, confess that all Presidential orders issued that were made part of the constitution of India, were wrong?”
“All people who knew Jaitley earlier feel sad that his latest attitude on Article 35A is detestable. A vast majority of the people of the State hold the view correctly that Article 35A is closely connected with the Article 370 of the Constitution of India. If Article 35A goes, the State’s relationship with the Union will be impaired, beyond repair,” he added.
