Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that the relationship between Jammu and Kashmir and India will be over if Article 370 is scrapped.
“Art 370 is a bridge between J&K and India. If you break that bridge (Art 370)…then you will have to renegotiate the relationship also,” said Mehbooba while addressing her party workers in Srinagar.
She said there will be new conditions between India and J&K, and that the people of the Muslim majority State would be forced to even think whether they want to join India or not.
She was responding to remarks made by senior BJP leader and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who had said that Article 35A is “constitutionally vulnerable” and is an impediment to the economic development of Jammu and Kashmir.
