Article 370 discussion only after Sec 35A verdict: RSS leader

GWALIOR: The Government should keep its view on Section 35A firmly in court so that a discussion can be taken up on Article 370 after a verdict on the former, RSS general secretary Bhaiyaji Joshi said on Sunday.

Article 35A, which was incorporated in the Constitution through a 1954 Presidential Order, accords special rights and privileges to the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir and bars people from outside the State from acquiring any immovable property in the State.

To a query on Article 370, Joshi said, “It is expected that the Government of the day will keep its viewpoint firmly. After a decision on this (Section 35A) case is delivered, the issue of Article 370 will be discussed in light of this decision.” (AGENCIES)
