I support the move on #JammuAndKashmir & #Ladakh and its full integration into union of India.— Jyotiraditya M. Scindia (@JM_Scindia) August 6, 2019
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.
Scindia was not the only Congress leader supporting the decision, Milind Deora a senior congress leader also supported the government's decision on Article 370 and said, "Put aside ideological fixations and debate what's best for India's sovereignty and federalism, peace in J&K, jobs for Kashmiri youth and justice for Kashmiri Pandits."
