Muzafar Shah for consensus on Article 35-A
Says will invite all interveners, parties for joint strategy
Srinagar: Member J&K Civil Society Coordination Committee and vice-president, Awami National Conference, Muzafar Ahmad Shah on Friday cautioned all mainstream political parties that public is keeping a close vigil on their words and deeds and the present situation is the consequential outcome of the ignorance, misrepresentation and carelessness of elected legislators who facilitated the erosion of special status of their state during last sixty five years.
In a statement from New Delhi to local news-gathering agency KNS, Shah said the situation has forced mainstream parties to bow their head before the strong public will on Article 35-A and special status of the state which is being challenged strongly by people inimical to the initiation of a genuine political process and a peaceful atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir state. He said “mainstream political parties bowed their head before the public will on Article 35-A and announce boycott of the proposed Panchayat and municipal elections. Time has come to get united and fight strongly the challenges thrown to the special status of the state.”
Muzafar Shah said J&K Civil Society Coordination Committee will invite all those who have become interveners to defend Article 35-A in the Supreme Court for a consensus so that the attempts to erode the sanctity of Article 35-A are thwarted.”
