Saifuddin Soz challenges Modi to debate on Article 370

Jammu, Dec 2 : Former union minister and Jammu and Kashmir Congress president Saifuddin Soz Monday challenged the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to a debate on Article 370.

Reacting to Modi's statement here Sunday that Article 370 giving special status to Jammu and Kashmir needed to be debated, Soz told a media conference here Monday: "I challenge Modi to a debate on Article 370 and I send this challenge to him through the media."

The head of the state Congress said Modi has no knowledge of either the constitution or the history of the country.

"He has become used to saying whatever comes to his mind without having any knowledge of either the country's constitution or its history," Soz said.

On the security arrangements made by the government in Jammu during Modi's rally and whether the arrangements were made to keep people away from the rally, Soz said: "The BJP has been making all sorts of noises about threats to Modi's rally."

"The central and the state governments did not want anything untoward to happen during the rally and that was why elaborate security arrangements were made in Jammu."
