Any move to abrogate Article 370 will reopen J&K’s accession issue to India, says Omar

Omar also minced no words in saying that Article 370 of the Constitution was acting as a ‘bridge’ between Jammu and Kashmir and rest of the country and attempts to weaken it would only weaken this relationship.

Omar’s forthright comments came in the backdrop of a debate set off by BJP prime minister ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s recent statement in Jammu that a debate should be held whether Article 370 that granted special status to J&K  had benefited the state or not.

‘I can’t understand why are you people projecting the Article 370, which is the foundation stone of relations between Jammu and Kashmir with rest of India, as a provision which is creating a distance between Kashmir and Delhi’, he said.
