SRINAGAR: Main opposition, National Conference, on Tuesday welcomed Chief Minister Mehbooba Muftis statement in the Legislative Assembly where she said there was no bigger anti-national act than raking up Article 370 and Article 35A repeatedly in repeated attempts to use the judicial route to weaken the States special constitutional status.
In a statement issued from Party Headquarters in Srinagar on Tuesday, National Conference said the party welcomes this statement as it was a reiteration of the partys consistent stand on the issue and also factually and constitutionally correct.
We have always maintained that Article 370 is the constitutional bridge that connects the State to the Union and that weakening it would in-turn make the constitutional link questionable and invalid. There have been repeated attempts to use the judicial route to somehow weaken Article 370 and Article 35A and National Conference has and will continue to oppose such plans, the NC Spokesperson said.
Mehbooba Jis statement is factually correct and we welcome it with a hope that the Chief Minister stands by what she has said in the days to come, the statement added.
