Hitting out at the Centre, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said the talk of revocation of Article 370, which provides special status to the state, was "irresponsible" and "ill-informed".
Terming the Article 370 as the "only constitutional link" between the state and rest of the country, Omar tweeted his reaction to the statement by Minister of State in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's office Jitendra Singh.
Singh said that a process of holding debates with various stake holders was on to apprise them about benefits and disadvantages of Article 370 for the state.
"So the new MoS PMO says process/discussions to revoke Art 370 have started. Wow, that was a quick beginning. Not sure who is talking," Omar tweeted.
"Mark my words and 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," Omar said.
He made it clear that Article 370 was the "ONLY Constitutional link" between J&K and rest of India.
"Talk of revocation of not just ill informed it's irresponsible," he said.
