‘What happens to Pakistan-administered Kashmir now?’

India revoked Article 370 of the Constitution, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

 

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has demanded to know what would happen to Pakistan-administered Kashmir after the removal of Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

 

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday proposed to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir and said that the state will be split into two Union Territories: Jammu and Kashmir with an Assembly and Ladakh without one.
 
Talking to reporters, Akhilesh Yadav said that the Modi government should have taken all parties into confidence before taking any such decision.

 

Any move that seeks to strengthen the integrity of India is to be welcomed. But in a democracy decisions must be made by consensus, not by threat, force or fear. All parties should be part of talks and due process. Nothing should be unilateral for that only leads to more strife.

 

“A country runs on consensus and all parties should have been consulted and taken into confidence. Putting leaders under house arrest or exerting pressure on people is not correct, but BJP knows how to bring institutions under its thumb. The question is what will happen to Pakistan-administered Kashmir now,” Akhilesh Yadav asked.
