A day after Article 370 was amended through an executive order, revoking the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, Congress party held a meeting of the working committee, last evening, and adopted a resolution deploring the manner in which Article 370 was abrogated and the state was dismembered.
As per the resolution, the CWC deplored the unilateral, brazen and totally undemocratic manner in which Article 370 of the Constitution was abrogated and the State of Jammu and Kashmir was dismembered by misinterpreting the provisions of the Constitution.
The resolution stated that Article 370 was conceived and crafted by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhai Patel and Dr B.R. Ambedkar, assisted by N. Gopalaswamy Iyengar and V.P. Menon. Notably, the BJP has constantly asserted that Article 370 was all Nehru’s fault and a Himalayan blunder.
“It deserved to be honoured until it was amended, after consultation with all sections of the people, and strictly in accordance with the Constitution of India,” read the resolution. Congress, in the resolution, pledged to fight the BJP and it’s alleged divisive and diabolical agenda with every power in its hands.
