Article 370 in J&K secures political ethos: Mehbooba

JAMMU: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said Article 370 secures political ethos in the State.

Also the Government at the Centre has a huge mandate of the people of the country, she said and added it provides an opportunity to move ahead in one voice and get many of the issues confronting the State resolved.
