Earlier, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday moved in the Rajya Sabha a Bill to revoke Article 370 of the Constitution which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir and a bill to bifurcate the state in two Union territories of Kashmir and Ladakh. Soon after the House assembled, Home Minister Amit Shah announced that the government has decided to repeal Article 370 of the Constitution which grants special status to J&K. He said that Article 370 will be considered null and void as soon as the President gives his assent to the proposal and the notification will be made available on all platforms.
''There should be no delay in the removal of Article 370,'' Mr Shah said. He said the government has also decided to bifurcate the state into two Union territories – Jammu and Kashmir, which will have a legislature, and Ladakh will be without a legislature. Mr Shah said that two Lt Governors have been proposed, one for Jammu and Kashmir and one for Ladakh. Shah’s announcement was immediately followed by massive uproar in the Upper House with opposition MPs describing it as a murder of Democracy. UNI
