Meanwhile, the nationally ruling, Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s policy agenda for the restive, majority-Muslim state includes scrapping its special constitutional status and possibly reshaping its electoral boundaries.
- BJP attempts to revoke Article 370 and Article 35A of the constitution would attract opposition in parliament and in Jammu and Kashmir.
- The BJP’s delimitation plans for Jammu and Kashmir would likely pave the way for the state to have its first Hindu chief minister.
- Pakistan will appeal to other majority-Muslim countries to support its position on Kashmir.
