New Delhi: Mayawati, the BSP chief stated on Monday that the Opposition leaders should have put in a little more thought before scheduling a visit to Jammu and Kashmir. She took to social media platform, Twitter and posted, "Did not the recent visit of Congress and other party leaders to Kashmir sans permission similar to giving the Centre and the Governor a chance to do politics? It would have been appropriate if they had thought about it a bit before going there."

Mayawati reminded that her party's ideologue Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar remained a supporter of unity, equality and integrity of India and that is why he was not in favour of implementing Article 370 in the state of Jammu Kashmir separately. "As it is known, Baba Saheb was always a supporter of unity, equality and integrity of the country and that is why he was not in favour of the separate provision of Article 370 in Jammu Kashmir. This was the reason why BSP supported the removal of this Article," she added.

According to news agency, ANI, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister also stated that it will take some time for normalcy to return in Jammu Kashmir. "But after the end of Article 370, about 69 years after the implementation of the Constitution in the country, it will take some time for the situation to become normal there. It is better to wait a bit, as has been accepted by the Honorable Court as well," she quoted. A delegation of Opposition leaders including Rahul Gandhi on Saturday had gone to Srinagar to see the ground situation in the region. However, they were not allowed to step out of Srinagar airport and were sent back an hour after landing in the city.
