If Article 370 was good why didn’t previous govts make it permanent: RSS leader
Jammu: RSS leader Indresh Kumar on Monday congratulated the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh on the abrogation of Article 370, saying the move has led to fulfilling of the “dream of one nation, one flag and one constitution”.
“The question arises if Article 370 was good why the previous governments did not make it permanent,” he asked and replied that they knew the article was destructive for the country.
Without naming PDP president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, he said those who were claiming that nobody would be left behind to carry the national flag in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019, were proved wrong as several lakh of nationalists welcomed and celebrated the move of the central government.
He said the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh should a pledge and raise the demand for China and Pakistan to vacate those areas which are under the illegal occupation of the two countries.
They should also ask Pakistan to stop oppression against its minorities.
“New Delhi is committed to restore statehood to J&K. The Union Territory demand of Ladakh was also fulfilled,” the RSS leader said.
In an apparent reference to the resentment against opening of 100 retail stores by a corporate house in Jammu, Kumar said it is not only unconstitutional but also not reflective of the trends in the country.
“Thousands of J&K businessmen and students are pursuing their activities in parts of the country but nobody has objected to them,” he said.
