Jammu and Kashmir chief minister speaks to the media on Friday after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has already raised the bar after she met with the Prime Minister and sought his intervention to avoid the crisis.

In an interview to Rising Kashmir, Kamal said Article 35-A and Article 370, which accords special status to the State, are the links that connect Jammu Kashmir with the country.

Article 35 (A) that gives special status to the state attacks the fundamental rights. He pointed out that people from Gujjar and Bakerwal communities got Scheduled Tribe status way back in 1991, but they did not get political reservation in the state legislature despite the fact that they were the third largest group after Kashmiri Muslims and Dogras. It announced a campaign to educate people about benefits of Article 35A with the inauguration of a seminar by party working president Omar Abdullah on August 14. Kashmiri politicians have been supporting it only to project J&K as different from India, he added.

Notes From The Phillies' 3-1 Win Over New York
Cesar Hernandez and Freddy Galvis each delivered an RBI single in the fifth to account for the Phillies' runs against Matz. Aaron Nola struck out eight batters and allowed one run in seven innings to beat the Mets 3-1 on Saturday.

"We have to wait to see what stand the government of India and state governments take before the Supreme Court". She further said all mainstream political parties will lose relevance in the Kashmir Valley if Article 35 (A) is done away with.

Er. Rasheed asked Mehbooba Mufti either to talk with confidence, courage, facts and sincerity or "must break her alliance with the BJP as it has given Sang Parivar an upper hand in destroying and misleading the facts about J&K dispute". The order was issued by the then President Rajendra Prasad on 14 May 1954 in exercise of the powers conferred by clause (1) of Article 370.

The Kashmir officials say that most of the buses will stay off road special government buses but some private buses and other vehicles will be available to the public.

And some say Manafort's recent change of law firms suggests that, if he wasn't already, he might be getting more concerned. According to legal experts, Mueller might be trying to pressure Manafort into cooperating with the investigation.

The Chief Minister said any attempt to change or abrogate Article 35 (A) was akin to questioning "the idea of India that has to accommodate with the idea of Jammu and Kashmir".

"The basis of our agenda of alliance is that status quo of 370 has to maintained none of us can go against that".

Professor Hari Om, a historian and social activist, said, "It is an atrocious article that creates a high wall between people of J&K and the rest of India".

The Eclipse: Watching your children, while you watch the totality
However, many people have fallen victim to phone eclipse glasses that won't actually protect your eyes. The telescopes will be spread evenly along the 14 states that will experience a full solar eclipse .

The Centre would explain to the Supreme Court the legal aspects of Article 35A. "The Prime Minister gave 100% assurance on the agenda of alliance", J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti said on the BJP-PDP alliance after meeting with the Prime Minister.
