Mumbai, September 4

Having a separate Constitution for Jammu and Kashmir was probably an “aberration”, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval said on Tuesday as he stressed that sovereignty can never be compromised.

His remarks come at a time the Supreme Court is hearing pleas challenging the constitutional validity of Article 35-A, which provides special rights and privileges to permanent residents of J&K.

At the launch of a book on Sardar Patel, Doval said “his contribution is not about the merger of states, it is only a means to an end... to make a sovereign state in which sovereignty of people was established in Constitution, applicable to the whole of it.” — PTI
