Article 370 And Delhi Agreement

Article 370 was a by-product of the 1952 Delhi Agreement between Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah. While relinquishing power, Maharaja Hari Singh was skeptical of Sheikh Abdullah. The head of the National Conference played an important role in including some controversial clauses in the agreement to allow the state to pass laws on state issues that, in 1947, had been subject to internal disruptions in the event of a return to Pakistan. The 1954 Presidential Order, officially The Constitution (Application to Jammu and Kashmir) Order, 1954 came into force on May 14, 1954. With the agreement of the State Constituent Assembly, a complete order was adopted to implement the 1952 Delhi Agreement. [41] [42] It is likely that it went far beyond the Delhi Agreement. [43] Kashmir`s political scene is back at stake. The statements of Mehbooba Mufti, J-K CM and PDP President, during the Curtain Day celebrations and the founders in Srinagar, have once again highlighted the controversial issue of the special status of the State, paying particular attention to Articles 370 and 35A of the Indian Constitution. Both articles have often been used by separatists, mild separatists and well-established politicians in the valley to create public hysteria and threaten nationalist forces that advocate full state integration. While making loud political noises, these leaders often forget that they do not represent the feelings of the entire population of the state, and their hunt for hatred is limited to the language districts of Kashmir`s Kashmir province.

Omar Abdullah, who should not be left behind, joined the race and added another dimension by declaring: „How can we debate the special status of Jammu and Kashmir without discussing accession? You can`t. They are two sides of the same coin. J-K joined India because of the special status granted to it, which resulted in a series of statements and responses. The media should not be abandoned. But what is surprising is the standard of debates, which lacked in-depth knowledge on outstanding issues and, in particular, understanding of controversial Articles 370 and 35A. Thirty-eight themes from the UNION`s list were cited as topics on which the EU legislator could legislate for the State. Some articles in ten of the twenty-two parts of the Indian Constitution have been extended to Jammu and Kashmir, with amendments and exceptions, as agreed by the state government. [35] In the case of Jammu and Kashmir, representatives of the Constituent Assembly[19] requested that only the provisions of the Indian Constitution corresponding to the initial instrument of accession be applied to the State and that the State Constituent Assembly, when constituted, decide on the other issues.
