In a latest shock to Congress leadership, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia offered his full support to the Modi Government’s move to scrap Article 370 and bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir in to two Union Territories.
Taking to Twitter, Jyotiraditya Scindia said: “I support the move on #JammuAndKashmir & #Ladakh and its full integration into union of India. Would have been better if constitutional process had been followed. No questions could have been raised then. Nevertheless, this is in our country’s interest and I support this.”
Jyotiraditya Scindia’s response left Congress leaders in confusion as it came hours after Rahul Gandhi broke silence and opposed the Modi Government’s move. In his tweet, Rahul categorically said that the “national integration isn’t furthered by unilaterally tearing apart J&K”.
