Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah demanded explanation from the 'higher ups' of the government on Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh's controversial statement on the Article 370.

"The process of repealing Article 370 has started. We are speaking to the stakeholders," Singh told a private news channel.

"Centre must tell us the 'stakeholders' it was talking to for repealing special status to Jammu and Kashmir," Omar said.

Contending that it was impossible for BJP government to abrogate Article 370, Omar remarked, "either J&K won't be part of India or Article 370 that grants special status to the state will still exist".

Taking strong exception to Omar's statement, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Ram Madhav retorted: "No one should take any offence to a call for a debate. J&K will always be an integral part of India with or without the provision."

The leader from RSS also asked whether Omar thought the state was his 'parental estate' and said no one should take any offence to any 'open-ended debate' on Article 370.
