Senior leaders of Opposition parties on Wednesday called on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti amid the row over proposed abrogation of Article 35 A and suggested that attempts to remove the article will have “serious consequences” in the state.
Among the opposition leaders who met Chief Minister were CPI (M) State Secretary, M Y Tarigami, PDF Chairman Hakeem Yaseen, DPN president Ghulam Hassan Mir.
The leaders discussed the serious implications of removal of Article 35 A on the state and its relation with the country.
Tarigami said that the leaders besides other measures suggested that a delegation of senior leaders and politicians should meet PM Modi and apprise him about the fallout of the removal of the article.
“We told the chief minister that the issue is very crucial and abrogation of the Article 35 A will be dangerous for the country and the state. Government should play its effective role with the centre and in the Supreme Court to safeguard and protect the article,” Tarigami said.
