India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced its intention to repeal a law providing for special rights for residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

Bharatiya Janata Party said in a statement on Monday that the “35A” article, which prevents non-residents in the region from buying property, is an obstacle to the development of the country.

For their part, political leaders in Kashmir, a Muslim majority, have warned that the repeal of the law could lead to widespread unrest in the region.

Parliamentary elections are due to take place in India on April 11 and voters will vote for seven days in more than five weeks, depending on where they live.
