Article 370 was the by-product of the 1952 Delhi Agreement between Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah. While Maharaja Hari Singh was relinquishing power, he was skeptical of Sheikh Abdullah. The head of the National Conference played an important role in the inclusion of some controversial clauses in the agreement to allow the state to legislate on state subjects that had left for Pakistan in 1947 due to internal unrest, in case of return. Accordingly, by Government Decree No. 251-JK (GAD) of 27.12.2019, the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir excluded Sheikh Abdullah`s birthday (5 December) from the list of UT public holidays for the calendar year 2020.

His doubts were confirmed when praja Parishad, founded by SSR leader Balraj Madhok, launched an agitation against the special status granted to Jammu and Kashmir in the Indian Constitution, and called for “full integration of the state with the rest of India.”
