Discuss issues on J&K: Modi

New Delhi/Srinagar, Dec 2 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Monday said he was ready to debate on several issues, including the Article 370, connected with the Jammu and Kashmir.


"Glad that after my call for a debate on Article 370, it is being widely debated among people & across TV, social media," Modi tweeted.

"However, we need rational & focused debate not only on 370 but other issues relating to J&K, including suffering of sections of J&K society," he said.

Modi made the comments a day after he triggered a political debate by saying that there should be discussion on the issue of Article 370 in the state.

Article 370 of the Constitution grants special autonomous status to Jammu and Kashmir.

He said the discussion should have been held to assert whether the section is benefiting the people of Jammu and Kashmir or not.

Modi made the remarks while addressing a rally in Jammu on Sunday.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said the BJP was searching for a regional alliance partner in the state.

"I will wait and see what the BJP puts in its election manifesto," he told media.

"It obviously seems the BJP is looking for a regional alliance partner in the state," Abdullah said.
