Earlier, senior BJP leader Kavinder Gupta had said the state administration was contemplating to simplify the procedure for grant of PRCs and a timeline should be fixed for its issuance under the Public Services Guarantee Act.
The National Conference, one of the state's major political parties, had also said earlier on Sunday that will oppose any move aimed at changing the procedure.
"This step will invent another problem in the state which has to be avoided in the larger interests of peace," the Congress spokesperson said.
He said as the state legislative assembly has been dissolved, the governor-led administration "has no mandate to interfere in the constitutional matters of the state".
"The governor administration needs to restrict itself to basic governance. No structural changes pertaining to PRC or J&K Bank are acceptable. Restrict your energies to what u r (you are) mandated to do -- which incidentally u r (you are) not doing. Please don't invent new problems," he wrote on Twitter.
Article 35A of the Constitution empowers the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly to define 'permanent residents' of the state who are eligible for special rights and privileges, which the legislature can provide.
The Supreme Court is currently hearing a bunch of petitions seeking abrogation of the legislation, which was added by a presidential order in 1954 through Article 370 of the Constitution.
