Govt should declare constituent assembly void: ANC
SRINAGAR, Aug 12: Jammu and Kashmir Awami National Conference (JKANC) today demanded the state government to declare 1951 state constituent Assembly as ‘void’ so that hatred and confusion spread in the name of Article 370 and 35(A) comes to an end.

Muzaffar Shah, ANC Senior Vice-President said while addressing a press conference here cautioned the government against fiddling with Article 35(A) saying its ‘abrogation’ will yield nothing other than ‘disaster’ in the state.

“It is obvious that if the Article 35 (A) is removed, relation of Kashmir with India will be affected badly. If the government really acknowledges decisions of state constituent Assembly then it must desist from speaking different languages on Article 370 and 35 (A),” He advocated for the formulation of fresh Assembly by dissolving the existing one so that the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are given chance to decide their future as per their wishes and aspirations.

“I will also present a memorandum to Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, President of India and prime Minister with regards to the formulation of fresh constituent Assembly in the state so that the hatred and chaos crated on Article 370 and Article 35 (A) comes to end,” Shah added.

He demanded that the constituent Assembly formed in 1951 be declared ‘void’ by passing an audience in the Parliament.

“1951 constituent Assembly is the base of conditional deal between India and the state of Jammu and Kashmir which makes it autonomous barring telecommunication, defense and external affairs,” said ANC Vice-President.

He claimed that Hurriyat could not be able to speak on Article 370 had not his grandfather and former Chief Minister, Sheikh Abdullah given special powers to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370.

“It’s Article 370 that makes Jammu and Kashmir state special than other states. So fiddling with it deepens the sense of alienation among masses,” said he.
