Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia became the surprise addition today to the list of party leaders openly backing the government on its decision to end special status for Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and split it into two union territories. Jyotiraditya Scindia, a party general secretary, tweeted his support just before a Congress leadership meet to firm up its stand.

“I support the move on #JammuAndKashmir & #Ladakh and its full integration into union of India. Would have been better if constitutional process had been followed. No questions could have been raised then. Nevertheless, this is in our country’s interest and I support this,” Jyotiraditya Scindia tweeted.

Congress has officially opposed the move, especially because of the manner in which it says the measure was railroaded through both houses.

Lok Sabha MPs met with Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi today before the Kashmir move was taken up in the lower house, in an attempt to present a stronger front.

Sonia Gandhi, presented with the options to support or oppose the move, reportedly said “We will oppose it and our opposition is based on the manner in which the people of Jammu and Kashmir, the state assembly, have not been consulted.”
