Srinagar, Aug 5: CPI (M) on Sunday said that attempts to abrogate the special status will have disastrous results in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Jammu unit of the party said that any attempt to tinker with Article 35 A would have disastrous and catastrophic results,” Any attempt to disturb Art. 35A of the Indian constitution will have disastrous results which are bound to endanger the relationship of the state with Indian union,’’ Sham Prasad Kesar regional secretary said.
Kesar also urged the Centre to file a strong counter affidavit in the apex court to defend the Article 35-A in the larger national interest.
“Keeping in view the sensitivities of Jammu & Kashmir, it becomes imperative for the political Leadership of the country to exhibit maturity and ensure already tense situation in the state is allowed to be raked up,” he said.
He said efforts need to be accelerated to unite the democratic forces to put up a “cohesive Struggle” against the move to dilute distinct identity of J&K.
“There is also a need to make people of Jammu and Ladakh regions aware that the abolition Article 35-A is harmful to the whole state,” Kesar said.
