Srinagar, Apr 01 : Reacting to the statement made by BJP national president Amit Shah, the state congress on Monday said that no power on earth can abrogate the Article 370 and 35A, saying that these promises were made in the previous elections as well.

Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president, Ghulam Ahmad Mir while addressing a news conference at party headquarters in Srinagar, said that Article 370 is the only bridge between Jammu and Kashmir and Union of India, therefore no power on earth can even think of abrogating it.

Amit Shah had stated that Article 370 and 35 A will be abrogated by 2020.

“We will highlight our achievement before the people and will not speak against the other parties,” he said, adding that Congress party for the wellbeing of youth and people will put forth its agenda and hopefully they will help the party’s candidate from the constituency to emerge victorious.

Furthermore, Jammu and Kashmir Zamindar Forum, in a press conference also announced that it will support Congress candidates in the upcoming elections.

“Congress has a similar agenda towards farmers and labourers, therefore, the organization has decided to support the party in upcoming polls so that the genuine demands of people will be fulfilled,” the forum said.
