I do not think Congress will take 300 seats, and Article 370 will be Restored in Jammu and Kashmir: Ghulam Nabi Azad

Ghulam Nabi Azad

Ghulam Nabi Azad, who was on a four-day visit to the Pir Panjal region, made it clear to the people during a public meeting organized at Krishna Chandra Park in Poonch that the restoration of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir is no longer possible. That is why he does not make any false promises about this in front of the people. Although he was accused several times that he does not talk about it, he was the only member in the Parliament who repeatedly raised the issue of Article 370 and 35-A.

Azad made it clear that the restoration of Article 370 is now either in the hands of the Supreme Court or the government. The present government has removed it, so we cannot expect it from them. If Congress gets 300 seats, it deserves to be restored, but they are not expecting it, given the current situation. He wants Congress to do better, and he also prays to Allah for this, but now he will not promise the people.

Azad termed the abrogation of Articles 35-A and 370 as a constitutional amendment, but it was done incorrectly as only the state legislature was authorized to bring such an amendment, but it was brought in the House. In his address during the public meeting, Ghulam Nabi Azad said that the removal of Articles 35-A and 370 is like any other constitutional amendment, but it has been done in a wrong way. Hundreds of times, Parliament brought constitutional amendments, and such amendments were also brought in the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir by the state assembly.

Referring to the abrogation of Articles 35-A and 370, Azad said that the Indian government could bring such constitutional amendments, but only through the state assembly, not the Parliament. The division and division of the state can be done only through the state assembly and not through the Parliament, but now the matter is in the Supreme Court, and I will refrain from commenting further on it. I fight for the restoration of statehood, which was promised on the floor of Parliament by the Prime Minister and the Home Minister, who promised to hold elections in J&K at the earliest.

The Prime Minister convened an all-party meeting of the leaders of Jammu and Kashmir in which I was the first speaker. The points I raised included the delimitation exercise and, finally, restoration of statehood in the election. Azad said that there are demands like job security and land security for the residents of Jammu and Kashmir and a bill for the return of Kashmiri Pandits. to be included in the Parliament for restoration of statehood in Jammu and Kashmir. Azad said that there is no greed to become the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir but to hold early elections and the security of land and job.

After completing the delimitation exercise this winter, pre-poll Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Wednesday that the present Lieutenant Governor is good, but we are against this system of bureaucracy because bureaucracy cannot replace the elected democratic government. Governors and Lieutenant Governors are good, and the current LG is also there, but the bureaucratic system is not good. He said that elected representatives like MLAs are the road between the people and the government, which are missing now. Therefore, we demand that the ongoing delimitation exercise in J&K be completed only this winter and restore statehood and conduct elections without delay.
