Article 370 gave special status to J&K is historical lie: JP Nadda

Updated:3 weeks ago IST

Bengaluru, Sep 22 (ANI): While addressing a event in Bengaluru, BJP working president JP Nadda on September 22 said, “That Article 370 gave special status to Jammu & Kashmir is a historical lie. There were no takers of this Article in the Constituent Assembly. Nobody wanted to consider this idea. When PM Nehru asked Sheikh Abdullah to convince the then Law Minister BR Ambedkar about Article 370, Ambedkar told him, ‘You want us to protect your borders, provide food and connectivity but you do not want citizenship rights for Indians in J&K. This is unacceptable to me’.”
