SOS International, which represents people displaced from PoK, has applied to make it a party in the petition challenging the validity of Article 35 A of the Constitution in the Supreme Court. The organization said in a statement that in the application filed on Friday, the apex court has been requested to consider the plight of people displaced by Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). They are victims of this provision.
In the application of Rajiv Chowdhury, chairman of SOS International, the attention has been drawn towards the Center’s minor relief package. People cannot take advantage of it, which are not permanent residents of the state.
The statement said that the petition has emphasized the plight of more than 1.2 million people and 1.5 lakh families who are still living in the transit camp and living in a very bad and bad condition in Jammu and Kashmir. It says that displaced people who have settled in other states cannot take advantage of this package. At the same time, senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar has also given a statement about 35 A. In a media report, he said that the Indian constitution should not end Article 35A. This will not save Kashmiri terrorism. The authority which has been in the Constitution for the last 90 years should be left there.
After some time, he told the news agency ANI that separatist Hurriyat leaders should also be included in the process of dialogue in Kashmir talks. He has said that Kashmir is an integral part of India. If I come here, it means that I believe the people of Kashmir as their own. If someone wants to be different then we should talk to him. All sections should be included in the conversation. I know that there are many Kashmiri who wants to stay with India.
