P Chidambaram, Former Finance Minister :
- Salute the unity and courage of six mainstream Opposition parties who came together yesterday to fight the repeal of Article 370.
- I appeal to them to stand resolutely behind their demand. Ignore the uninformed criticism of self-styled nationalists who do not read history but try to re-write history.
- The Constitution of India contains many examples of Special Provisions for states and asymmetric distribution of power How will the government resolve the Naga issues if it is against making Special Provisions?
