Abrogation of Article 370 a big mistake by Indian govt: Soz

Srinagar, June 27 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior Congress leader, Saifuddin Soz said the abrogation of Article 370, which accorded special status to the territory, was a big mistake by the Indian government.

Saifuddin Soz in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “While the Indian Home Minister, Amit Shah is free to say what he said recently on our internal autonomy as enshrined by Article 370 of the Constitution of India, the fact remains that the abrogation of the said Article unilaterally is a very big mistake on the part of India.”

He said Shah’s assertion that Article 370 was the root of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir is not based on facts. “He (Shah) has not offered even a single fact in support of his assessment,” Soz added.

He also took a dig at leaders describing restoration of statehood as a basic issue for J&K, saying they were trying to mislead public opinion. “The real issue is restoration of internal autonomy”, he maintained.
