Article 370 abrogation only on pape: Sanjay Raut


Shiva Sena (UBT) Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said on Sunday that the repeal of Article 370, which ended the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, by Narendra Modi’s government was only on paper and was done to protect the political interests of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

In his weekly column ‘Rokthok’ in party spokesman ‘Saamana’, Raut said that Kashmiri Pandits had not been given their rights despite this move and that BJP leaders have no answer to their woes.

A Kashmiri Pandit was recently killed by terrorists in Pulwama, but the BJP poured water on the community’s grief by arresting Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia in the alleged excise tax scam (thus diverting attention of the murder).

Jammu and Kashmir was and remains an integral part of India. The repeal of Article 370 is only on paper and was done to serve the political interests of the BJP,” he said.

He also said that the ‘Hindu Akrosh Morcha’ recently organized in Mumbai against ‘love jihad’ and other issues alleged by right-wing groups should be held in JK to protest the killing of Kashmiri Pandits.

He expressed concern about the re-emergence of pro-Khalistan elements in Punjab, adding that it was an issue related to internal security that cannot be left in the hands of the state government there.
