Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that Article 370 of the Indian Constitution is the “strength” and “honour” for the state and the special status would not be threatened by the New Industrial Policy.
She said the New Industrial Policy completely synchs with the one formulated by the then Chief Minister Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah in 1975.
“Article 370 is our strength and our honour,” Mehbooba said in the Legislative Council about the provision in the Indian Constitution which grants special status to the state.
Various political parties including the separatist groups have opposed the New Industrial Policy.
