At a time when the debate over Article 35A has divided regional parties in Jammu and Kashmir and the Centre, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Wednesday that the outfit does not accept Article 370 and 35A of Constitution.

Article 35A provides powers to the Jammu and Kashmir legislature to define ‘permanent residents’ of the state and bestow special rights and privileges on them. On August 31, the Supreme Court deferred hearing the petitions against Article 35A to January after the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir government argued that it could lead to a law and order situation in the state ahead of the coming panchayat and local body elections.
