The revocation of Article 370 was announced by Home Minister Amit Shah in the Upper House of Parliament today, ending 70 years of stated policy on the state. The proposal came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting of Union Cabinet morning. Government plans reorganisation of jammu and Kashmir as union territory, Shah informed Rajya Sabha. Shah urged members of parliament to discuss the legislation that seeks to end autonomous status for Kashmir, which allows only residents to buy property and hold state government jobs.
The resolution comes after political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir including former Chief Ministers Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference chairman Sajad Lone, were placed under house arrest as strict restrictions were imposed in the Kashmir Valley from early Monday morning.
