‘How Governor can give concurrence on behalf of people of J&K?’: Sajad Lone

New Delhi: Questioning August 5, 2019 decisions, Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Gani Lone on Wednesday questioned how the Governor can give concurrence on behalf of more than one crore people of Jammu & Kashmir.

Talking to reporters outside the Supreme Court, Lone wondered whether the Governor is a super-human being who can sign on behalf of one crore people of J&K.

J&K’s then governor Satya Pal Malik had given concurrence on behalf of the J&K Government for constitutional changes effected by the Union Government on August 5 & 6 in 2019.

Lone, who was flanked by party spokesperson Adnan Ashraf Lone, said that improvement in law and order is not a new thing and cannot be used to justify abrogation of Article 370.

Questioning August 5, 2019 decisions, Lone said that the Constituent Assembly of Jammu & Kashmir can only take decisions on Article 370.

“There was so much political arrogance that the Legislative Council which existed at that time was not even consulted,” he said.

People Conference has challenged August 5, 2019 decisions in the Supreme Court. Advocate Rajeev Dhavan is arguing on behalf of the party in the case. KNO
