Article 35A is a matter of right not a privilege. Fiddling with it will have disastrous consequences

Don’t play with fire; don’t fiddle with Article-35A, else you will see what you haven’t seen since 1947, if it’s attacked then I don’t know which flag people of J&K will be forced to pick up instead of the tricolour.

After Uri attack, I was asked to crackdown on Jamaat-e-Islami and other religious leaders like it is happening today, but I refused to do so

Many in the country are talking of war, but we are the biggest victims of the war. Article 35 gives rights to permanent citizens of J&K, those are not privileges

Crackdown on Kashmiris suits BJP’s election agenda

Our identity is under threat so right now my priority is not elections

I am in touch with Omar Abdullah and would want other parties like Congress to form a joint strategy regarding Article 35A and deal with the consequence if it was tinkered with

I don’t know if Article 35A is tinkered with nobody here would be left to shoulder the tricolor and I don’t know what flag will people raise then and consequences would be worst than what you have seen since 1947

Some hawkish elements across country want to take revenge of Pulwama attack from Kashmiris… There is war mongering going on of which J&K would be the worst victim
