Shillong: While condemning the ruling BJP Government in the Centre for the abolition of Article 370 and 35A, former Chief Minister, Dr. Mukul Sangma accused the BJP Government for being the threat for the people in the North East which have the Sixth Schedule.
“The Standstill Agreement that was signed between the Maharaja of Jammu & Kashmir, which Pakistan was the only one to sign the truce, while India was not part of it. This is the wise thinking of Nehru, if India was part of the truce, Jammu & Kashmir would have become a Nation now”. Dr. Mukul Said. He also said that the abolition is nothing but sheer highhandedness of the Centre leaving no room for the people’s voice and concerns. It is very essential to have proper deliberation first before scrapping the article, the Congress leader said.
This highhandedness of the Centre in the case of Jammu and Kashmir sends strong wave that will not be far from taking place even in the North East, he lamented.
