LUCKNOW: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said Articles 370 and Article 35A should be seriously reviewed and scrapped.
While Article 370 gives autonomous status to Jammu and Kashmir, Article 35A allows the Himalayan state’s legislature to define permanent residents of the State.
Speaking at a voters’ awareness programme here, Singh attacked National Conference leader Omar Abdullah for his recent remarks that there should be a separate prime minister for Kashmir.
“When a person, who has occupied a Constitutional post says such things, then Articles 370 and 35A should be seriously reviewed. Since these (provisions) have mostly caused losses, Article 370 and 35A should be scrapped.” (AGENCIES)
