Congress opposes complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with rest of India. Read their statements on Article 370 decision

Speaking to the media, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that Jammu and Kashmir is a border state which is culturally, geographically, historically and politically different, which was bound together by Article 370.

As India witnessed history being made after Modi government, led by Home Minister Amit Shah announced in the Rajya Sabha that Article 370 has been effectively revoked by Presidential order, the Congress party has decided to protest against revoking of the controversial article.

Congress leader and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad condemned the government’s proposal on Article 370, abrogating the special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Speaking to the media, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that Jammu and Kashmir is a border state which is culturally, geographically, historically and politically different, which was bound together by Article 370. He said BJP drunk in power and to get votes, it has govt scrapped 3-4 things. “They’ve cut off the head of the country. Political parties will fight and stand with Jammu and Kashmir,” said Azad.

“In the history of India, this day will be written in black letters. they have abrogated Article 370 and Article 35A. Further, they have bifurcated the state of Jammu and Kashmir by making a Union territory. Even Governor is replaced by Lieutenant Governor. BJP does not understand the state as they have come to power now,” said Azad.

He further added that Kashmir shares borders with China and Pakistan. BJP has taken a treacherous decision and has destroyed democracy and the unity and integrity of the state. “The people of Jammu and Kashmir had fought the Pakistan Army with sticks. The BJP has now destroyed the people of Jammu and Kashmir culturally, politically, socio-economically,” added Azad.

Ghulam Nabi Azad said his party along with other ‘secular’ political parties will stand with the people of Jammu and Kashmir to protest against the historic decision of abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of state into two union territories.

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said that the disintegration of India has begun with the resolution on Article 370. “The govt has illegally disintegrated J&K. This will set a precedent and allow the govt to disintegrate any state as per its will and we will not stand by this,” said P Chidambaram.

He has also said that the future will realise what a grave mistake the Modi government has made.

Earlier in the day, the government of India proposed bifurcation of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir to be one Union Territory and Ladakh will be a separate Union Territory, according to this proposal.

The Congress party has clearly sacrificed national integrity and interest at the altar of petty politics. Articles 370 and 35A were the monsters hindering the complete and conditionless integration of Kashmir with the rest of India. By opposing this move, the Congress party has possibly damaged its electoral fortunes even more.
