Srinagar:

Taking tough stand against the proposed abrogation of Article 35-A, Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) Saturday during a protest march in Srinagar said that the move would snowball into the major conflict.
KEA said the state government should fight tooth and nail against the proposed abrogation of the article.
Protesting against the proposed abrogation of Article 35-A, KEA during the protest demonstration said: “Every single individual of Kashmir will hit the streets and the valley-wide protests will be observed continuously if the state or centre government try to erode this Article.”
The members of KEA while taking out a protest march from Press Enclave chanted anti-BJP and anti-RSS slogans like “we will not compromise with our future”, KEA will not allow anybody to abrogate the Article 35-A, Kashmir will witness the 2016 uprising again, save Article 370 and Article 35-A.” The porters later assembled at Ghanta Ghar Lal Chowk in Srinagar.
During the protest, KEA acting chairman Farooq Ahmad Dar said, “The manifesto of BJP and RSS is to change the demography of the state and are also trying to change the Muslim majority of J&K state into the minority group by sending more and more non-locals to settle in the valley.”
Dar said: “Abrogation of this article is a plan and strategy of BJP and RSS and we will not accept these agendas implemented in the Jammu and Kashmir state and even we will not allow the state or central government or any politician to abrogate the article 35-A.”
Dar further said that if the state or centre government eroded this article which gives protection to article 370 and state subject law, “the Valley will witness the worst uprising than 2016.”
Chairman of KEA, Mohammad Yousf Chapri while speaking on the Article 35-A issue said, “Article 370 is a heart of Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir and the Article 35-A is the soul of the state constitution which safeguards and protects our special status and state subject law.”
Chapri said, “The agenda of BJP and RSS is to snatch the rights of the Kashmiri people by abrogating this article which we will never accept and let it happen.”
Chapri further said, “This article is future of Kashmir and we will not let anyone destroy our future.”
“This is a political issue, and if the state or central government try to erode this article then 1.5 crore population of the state will hit the streets,” Chapri said.
