This abuse of executive power has grave implications for national security: Rahul Gandhi on scrapping of Article 370

Article 370

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday condemned the BJP-led NDA government’s decision to scrap Article 370 and said that “this abuse of executive power has grave implications for our national security.”

“National integration isn’t furthered by unilaterally tearing apart J&K, imprisoning elected representatives and violating our Constitution. This nation is made by its people, not plots of land. This abuse of executive power has grave implications for our national security,” Gandhi tweeted.

Yesterday, Congress opposed the move and said that the BJP did it to gain votes.

“For the last few days, Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh were tensed with a host of rumours flying all over. There were fears of Article 370 being scrapped, bifurcation of the state among many others. But, no one in the world, had expected all of these fears to come true together,” Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said outside Parliament.

“The BJP-led NDA government revoked Article 370 for votes. This will be written in black words. As if revoking Article 370 and 35A was less that they divided the state as well and made Ladakh a union territory. Jammu and Kashmir will not have a Governor now but a Lieutenant Governor. I had never thought that the NDA government will stoop to the level of removing the existence of Jammu and Kashmir,” Azad further said.
