After Article 370 Move, Omar Abdullah Warns Of "Dangerous Consequences" 

New Delhi: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah said that the government's decision today to scrap Article 370, is a "total betrayal of trust" of the people and that it amounted to "aggression".

Today, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, stunned the parliament by informing that Article 370 - which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir -  has been abolished with the president signing an order that  comes into effect "at once." Mr Shah said that Jammu and Kashmir will also be "reorganized," with the state's bifurcation into two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

 

The National Conference's leader Omar Abdullah is among those placed under house arrest since late last night.

"The government of India (GOI)'s unilateral and shocking decisions today are a total betrayal of the trust that the people of Jammu & Kashmir had reposed in India when the State acceded to it in 1947. The decisions will have far-reaching and dangerous consequences . This is an aggression against people of the State as had been warned by an all-parties meeting in Srinagar yesterday," Mr Abdullah said in a statement.

The three leaders of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and Sajad Lone were placed under house arrest after midnight on Sunday in an unprecedented lockdown that follows a massive security build-up and a first-ever government advisory asking Amarnath pilgrims and tourists to leave Kashmir immediately.

Mehbooba Mufti, the Peoples Democratic Party leader dubbed the decision to scrap Article 370 as "the darkest day in Indian democracy".

 

Political leaders in the valley were united in their fight to preserve Jammu and Kashmir's special status.
