Srinagar, 14 Aug: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Additional General Secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal on Monday expressed hope that the constitutional bench will uphold the constitutional supremacy that embraces diversity of the country.
Kamal said that the party has mounted a challenge on the government’s August, 05 2019 actions. “This case, therefore, goes to the heart of Indian federalism, democratic processes and the rule of the apex court as the guardian of the federal structure,” he said.
“We will continue our fight against the attempts aimed at denuding J-K of its unique identity and culture, legally and democratically,” he added saying, “August 5 (2019) move of the Centre cannot stand the judicial scrutiny. It was also a massive assault on the Constitution. It undermined the asymmetric federalism and diversity of the country. Assault on Article 370 and 35-A is certainly an all-out attack on country’s diversity.”
