Dr Hina Bhat is a veteran dentist in Jammu and Kashmir. She is also BJP candidate for the J&K Assembly polls from Amira Kadal Assembly constituency.

 Apart from the fact that she is a new face in politics, Bhat has recently been in media limelight for making a controversial statement on Article 370 that goes against the traditional stand of the party on this sensitive issue.

Nothing less than a shocker, as it came from a BJP candidate, Hina Bhat said that she will be the first to pick up a gun if Article 370 is abrogated ever. The BJP , traditionally, has always stood for the abrogation of this article.

Hina Bhat said that Article 370 was all about Kashmir's identity.

“If Article 370 is aborogated, then I will be the first one to pick up the gun” stated Bhat as she waved aside claims of it being BJP's main agenda.

She is also the Vice President of the BJP's women wing in the state.
