‘Situation not conducive for elections’

SRINAGAR, Sep 10(Agencies): Senior congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar Monday said that Article 35A, which grants special rights and privileges to Jammu and Kashmir citizens, should not be abrogated in the “interest of the nation.”
While talking to a Srinagar based news agency, Mani Shankar Aiyar said, “I am always in favour of election but the present situation of Kashmir is not suitable for elections.” He added, “If it is possible for government they should postpone election for some time.” He further said, “Because of wrong decision of BJP, Kashmir has seen such situation.”
Congress leader said, “I am in favour of election but BJP created new issue of Article 35A that is why situation is not good for elections.” He added that central government didnot want to understand people’s feeling.
“BJP should assure the people - nothing is going to happen to Article 35 A. Article 35 A is in the interest of the nation. It should not be touched. Nobody should make any effort for its abrogation,” Aiyar said.
He added, “Till now I was talking about conducting election in Kashmir but today situation is a clear message and elections must be postponed if it is possible.”
