Peoples Democratic Party leader and former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, on Saturday, sent a warning to the Centre saying, if it tries to revoke the Article 370 of the Constitution, the relationship between the Union of India and J&K would be over.
Mufti said, “If you break the bridge (Article 370), then you will have to renegotiate the relationship between India and Jammu & Kashmir. There will be new terms and conditions, there will be fresh negotiations. Like 1947, you will have to decide on what basis do you plan to take over a Muslim-dominated state? You had given us the status under the law. If you finish it, we will have to think about the new conditions and whether we would even want to stay with you.”
