BJP will remove 370 now: Kavinder Gupta

NIN NEWS SERVICE | SRINAGAR, MAY 25: Senior Leader of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the former deputy chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Kavinder Gupta said BJP in very clear terms has said that if Article 370 separated Kashmir from India it would be undesirable for us and BJP will remove 370 now.

In an conversation with News Agency Gupta said, “If there were some good things in the Article 370 then we were ready to adopt but there is nothing good in article 370 and 35A, and it’s time to remove both the article from Jammu and Kashmir”.

Gupta said that the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution continues to be part of the party's core ideology and it will work in that direction whenever it garners the required numbers in Parliament.

"As far as the abrogation of Article 370 is concerned, it continues to be part of the core ideology of BJP, but right now we don't have enough numbers in Parliament to do away with it ... but in future when we have the required numbers we will work towards its removal," Kavinder Gupta said in an interview with PTK.

2nd phase of polling

parliamentary constituency. Udhampur constituency recorded the highest turnout of 70.2% while as Srinagar constituency recorded the lowest turnout of14.1 which is much less than the Baramulla constituency, which polled 34.9%. Though, the Srinagar constituency polled very low percentage in comparison to Baramulla. The credit of the successful culmination of second stage of polling goes tothe governor administration, which has been instrumental in conducting peaceful elections. The valley witnessed a low turnout, as the separatists and the Hurriyat leaders had given a boycott call. Brisk voting has been recorded in Ganderbal and Budgam districts while as in the Srinagar district low turnout has been recorded. Still the peaceful polling in the second phase is a serious blow to the separatists, who had given a shut-down call but there remained no impact of militant threats and poll boycott calls in the valley, where people including women, young and elderly citizens turned out in large numbers to elect their representatives to theLok–Sabha. In the second phase, like the first phase the migrant voters recorded the lowest voter turnout. The lowest turnout of migrant voters is the result of cumbersome process of M-Forms.

Voters of the Jammu division took part in the polling with great pomp and show. First time voters exercised their franchise with great enthusiasm. They were optimistic to see India as world power. Overall, the Jammu showed a great participation in the democratic process. The need is that efforts should be made to make maximum participation in the democratic process.

   These elections once again showed that Kashmiri people are fed-up with the militancy and the separatists calls, that is the reason that people participated in the election in large numbers, that too under the threat of Hurriyat and separatists, which shows that these anti-national parties are no longer relevant in the state, as they have lost the confidence of the people. Though the Kashmir centric political parties have created a misunderstanding among the people on the ban of vehicular traffic on the national highway and the abrogation of article 370 and 35-A of the Indian constitution but the people did not pay any heed towards these gimmicks and exercised their franchise peacefully. Anyhow, the Governor Administration deserves all appreciation of conducting first phase of elections peacefully. Let us hope all the other phases of Parliamentary elections will culminate peacefully and violence free.
