‘Monumental Decision Towards National Integration, Historic Wrong Undone’: Arun Jaitley On Article 370 Abolition

Former Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley

Former Finance Minister and senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley has hailed the abolition of Article 370 and called it a monumental decision towards national integration.

Jaitley stressed that this decision would be most beneficial to the people of Jammu and Kashmir, which will usher in more investment, industries, private educational institutions, jobs and revenue.

Jaitley stated that while J&K was integrated into India in 1947, Article 370 and 35A came into force in 1952 and 1954 respectively hence how could the provisions be pre-conditions to the merger.

“A historical wrong has been undone today. Article 35A came through the back door without following the procedure under Article 368 of the Constitution of India. What was a temporary and transient provision cannot be treated as permanent”, said Jaitley.

Jaitley as a result gave his compliments to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for “correcting a historic blunder”.
