Article 370: Congress leaders in Rajasthan support BJP government
Jaipur: Some Congress leaders in Rajasthan also have refused to toe the party line. Congress leader Jyoti Mirdha and sports and youth affairs minister Ashok Chandna welcomed the BJP government’s decision to scrap Article 370.
Mirdha said that the BJP government’s decision to scrap Article 370 was commendable. “It was a welcoming move taken in the interest of a united nation. Protesting against it just for the sack of it isn’t good. I support the government on this issue because the country comes first,” she said.

Similarly, sports and youth affairs minister in Rajasthan Ashok Chandna tweeted that he supports the BJP government.
“It is my personal opinion. It is for the first time that I am supporting this government over an issue; however, they should refrain from acting arbitrarily and move forward after taking all concerned parties into confidence,” Chandna tweeted.
यह मेरी निजी राय है, जम्मू-कश्मीर में अनुच्छेद 370 हटाना सरकार का पहला फैसला है जिसका मैं स्वागत करता हूँ।— Ashok Chandna (@AshokChandnaINC) August 6, 2019
लेकिन 370 बदलने का क्रियान्वरण तानाशाही से ना होकर शांति और विश्वास के माहौल में होकर इसका अच्छे से निस्तारण हो ताकि भविष्य में देश के किसी नागरिक को कोई समस्या ना होl
Rajasthan Youth Congress general secretary Ayush Bhardwaj also hailed the Narendra Modi government for its ‘bold decision’ in a Facebook post.
Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot didn’t directly criticize the BJP government’s decision; however, he condemned the arrests of the former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir.
He tweeted, “For us to be a progressive, vibrant democracy-all political parties and local representatives needed to be involved. He said that there was no justification for arresting former CMs’, who took oath under the constitution and treating them at par with separatists.
“I pray and hope that peace prevails,” Pilot stated in this tweet.
