Jammu and Kashmir
Bangalore, May 28: Beginning from Omar Abdullah to Mehbooba Mufti, newly appointed minister Jintendra Singh to other BJP ministers -- all have been discussing about Article 370 of the Indian Constitution. Now, when the country is debating about the controversial Article.

Singh on Tuesday, May 27 triggered a controversy after he pitched for a debate on BJP's stand demanding the repeal of Article 370 which guarantees special status for Jammu Kashmir.

Singh, BJP MP from Udhampur in the state, argued that the debate would help convince the "unconvinced" that the article had actually worked more to J&K's disadvantage. However, Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti raised voice against the demand of debate.

Earlier on Tuesday, Abdullah tweeted, "Mark my words & save this tweet - long after Modi Govt is a distant memory either J&K won't be part of India or Art 370 will still exist. Art 370 is the ONLY constitutional link between J&K & rest of India. Talk of revocation of not just ill informed it's irresponsible."

Now, when the politicians are yet to take a decision on the debate, micro-blogging site Twitter already began debating on the controversial Article 370.
