Srinagar: CPI(M) leader M Y Tarigami on Tuesday said the statement of External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar that Article 370 was a temporary provision was misleading.

Jaishankar, at a book reading in the US, said Article 370 was a temporary provision in the Constitution, which has been put to rest.

"The statement of #EAM is misleading. Article 370 could only be rescinded with the consent of the J&K constituent assembly," Tarigami tweeted.

He said the abrogation of Article 370 could only benefit the enemies of the country.

"Abrogating the constitutional relationship of the people of J&K with the Union could only benefit the enemies of the country," he added.
