"We will not sit as silent spectators and once again the nation will see the same movement once launched by (late) Shyama Prasad Mukherjee (the founder of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh)," senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley told at a seminar.
Mukherjee had launched a movement against the entry permit system that prevailed in Jammu & Kashmir earlier under which citizens from other parts of the country had to obtain a permit to gain entry, he said.
Mukherjee had also raised his voice against grant of special status to Jammu & Kashmir under Article 370, the Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha said.
"It was due to the wrong ideology of (India's first Prime Minister late Jawaharlal) Nehru that Article 370 was incorporated in JK," he said.
Carving out of a special status for Jammu and Kashmir was a "historical blunder", Jaitley said.
