Rais­ing the old slo­gan “your hon­our, my hon­our: Ar­ti­cle 370”, Sogami said the party would take the is­sue to the people. Ab­dul­lah has been con­sis­tently as­sert­ing that J&K has not merged but ac­ceded to In­dia. In­ter­est­ingly, Singh’s younger brother, busi­ness ty­coon Dewinder Singh Rana is head­ing the party in Jammu and is a close aide of Omar. How­ever, the rul­ing party was not alone in slam­ming Singh’s com­ments. “If you are at­tempt­ing any change in Ar­ti­cle 370, it means you want to rene­go­ti­ate a new re­la­tion­ship with J&K,” PDP pres­i­dent Me­hbooba Mufti said. “You will have to ask the people about their de­ci­sion then. That means you are giv­ing a choice to J&K to rene­go­ti­ate its fu­ture. Is BJP ready to do that? I do not think so.”
