CWC resolution is party’s stand on Article 370, all leaders must follow it: AICC


The All-India Congress Committee (AICC) on Saturday said “the August 6, 2019 CWC resolution on the J&K issue is the party’s stand” on the matter and urged all party leaders to follow that.

AICC spokesperson Pawan Khera said this in response to media queries on the BJP’s criticism of the Congress and its senior leader Digvijaya Singh over his alleged comments, made in the presence of a Pakistani reporter, on Clubhouse that the Congress would have a relook into the abrogation of Article 37.

Khera, however, avoided a direct criticism or endorsement of Singh’s comment. It is understandable since the letter and spirit of the said CWC resolution, then passed by rejecting a group of party leaders’ backing to the Centre scrapping Article 370, was a strong rejection and denouncement of the Narendra Modi government scrapping Article 370 and bifurcating J&K. Yet, the CWC resolution had also chosen to not dwell on what the Congress will do on the matter in future.

However, two years since then, many top Congress leaders have become less vocal on scrapping Article 370, which some say is because of the perceived public mood.

On the day the Modi regime pushed its J&K agenda through in Parliament, a combative CWC resolution stated, “The CWC deplores the unilateral, brazen and totally undemocratic manner in which Article 370 of the Constitution was abrogated and the state of Jammu and Kashmir was dismembered by misinterpreting the provisions of the Constitution. Every principle of constitutional law, states’ rights, parliamentary procedure and democratic governance was violated”.
