Amit Shah daydreaming about scrapping of Article 370: Tarigami
Time has come for BJP leadership to pack their bags
Srinagar, May 13: CPI(M) leader and former MLA, M Y Tarigami today said that Amit Shah is daydreaming when he talks about scrapping of Article 370 as time has come ‘when the Modi-Shah duo should get ready to pack their bags as reports are pouring in that the BJP is expected to lose the election’.
“Article 370 will remain there, but the BJP government won’t. It is better for Modi and Shah to accept the reality as they are losing. By spreading lies about abrogation of Article 370, they are trying to divert the attention of voters from real issues,” Tarigami said in a statement issued here today.
He said that Article 370 is in the basic structure of Indian Constitution. J&K acceded to India under the guarantees provided by the Constitution of India. It is the Constituent Assembly which incorporated Article 370 in the Constitution providing a constitutional basis for the relationship of J&K with the Union.
“The Article 370 could be abrogated or amended only upon the recommendation of the State’s Constituent Assembly, which was dispersed in November 1956, after adopting a Constitution for the State,” he said.
