Mehbooba thanks Prez, PM

Srinagar: Welcoming the protection granted to the sensitivities and special status of Jammu and Kashmir in today’s Presidential Order on GST, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti termed it as the victory of Indian democracy and a tribute to the powers of the state legislature.
Intervening during a discussion on GST in the legislative council, Mehbooba described the order as an important milestone in the constitutional relations between the State and the Centre. She said it is equally satisfying that for the first time in the State’s history that the sensitivities and concerns flagged by the government and legislature of the state were duly incorporated by the Centre while issuing the Presidential Order. “Otherwise during the last 70 years, unfortunately, central laws were extended to the State in a manner which raised doubts in the minds of many people here”, she said in her intervention adding that with such a transparent conduct of discussions on the present subject, the doors for any manipulations in constitutional relations of the State with the Centre stand closed for ever.
