ANH Desk

Srinagar, April 3: PDP president and Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti Wednesday took a dig at BJP president Amit Shah stating that Shah was “daydreaming” about abrogating Article 370 by the year 2020.  She also said 2020 will also be state’s deadline to the country.

“2020 will also be a deadline from Jammu and Kashmir to the nation. If you remove those terms and conditions on which Jammu and Kashmir acceded to India, our relation with the country will also end,” Mehbooba told reporters after filing her nomination papers from the Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency.

The former chief minister was responding to BJP president Amit Shah’s assertion that Article 35A, which guarantees special status to Jammu and Kashmir in terms of residency rights, will be repealed by 2020.

On the Congress manifesto for the Lok Sabha polls, Mehbooba said it was word by word same as the Agenda of Alliance agreed upon between her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and the BJP at the time of government formation in Jammu and Kashmir in 2015.

“Congress manifesto is same as what Mufti Mohammad Sayeed kept in Agenda of Alliance with BJP…status quo on Article 370, revocation of AFSPA, holding dialogue and reducing army footprint from civilian areas. It is word by word the same thing,” she asserted. (Agencies)
