Nadda accuses Opposition of ‘confusing’ people on Art 370

CHANDIGARH: BJP’s national working president J P Nadda here on Monday said Article 370 was a temporary provision in the Constitution and blamed the Abdullah family, late PDP leader Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad for “confusing” people about the special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

“First Sheikh Abdullah, later Farooq Abdullah, and Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, then Omar Abdullah and Ghulam Nabi Azad used to say there is a special status to Jammu and Kashmir. They confused the world. It is not a special status,” Nadda said while addressing a public meeting organised by the Chandigarh unit of BJP here.

Nadda asserted that the special status to J-K was temporary and transitional. “From the very beginning, Article 370 was temporary and transitional,” Nadda said, adding that there was no taker for the provision. (AGENCIES)
