New Delhi: The Union home minister Amit Shah on Monday announced several cabinet decisions and proposed resolutions affecting the special status granted to Jammu and Kashmir under the Indian constitution.
Shah first proposed a resolution which read down Article 370’s provisions. It recommends that the president issues an order deleting all the clauses of Article 370, and brings J&K in line with the rest of India instead of being granted special status.
He then introduced another resolution saying that the state of J&K will be reorganised such that Ladakh is one union territory and Jammu and Kashmir another.
