J&K (Reorganisation) Bill 2019: How parties voted to bifurcate state

Jk-Troops

India removed Kashmir's special autonomous status from its constitution with a presidential decree on Monday.

New Delhi| Home Minister Amit Shah is conducting a high-level meeting in the parliament premises.

As soon as the proposal was made, there was a pandemonium in the house.

Article 370 of the Indian constitution formed the basis of Kashmir's accession to India and gave the state of Jammu and Kashmir its own constitution and decision-making rights for everything apart from foreign affairs, communications, and defense.

Meanwhile, a rumpus erupted in upper house of Indian parliament after opposition chanted slogans and protested against Shah's suggestion to discuss the legislation seeking to end special status for Kashmir.

Gul Panag has welcomed the governments decision of scrapping Article 370, calling it an "incredibly bold move".

Samsung Galaxy Note 10-series tipped to come with Exynos 9825 SoC
The launch of the Galaxy Note phones is just five days away and we've been hit with a shocking piece of news that no one expected. Further, an 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage is being considered to be the least one can have on the Note 10 range.

Former chief minister of J&K and People's Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said that to protect the identity of the State was the question of 'do and die for us'. Jammu & Kashmir will be like Delhi and Ladakh like Pondicherry and Diu Daman. Though it was debated, Shah said Indian President Ram Nath Kovind had already signed the order, bringing it into effect "at once".

"India has failed Kashmir in keeping its promises". Two of the three wars India and Pakistan have fought since their independence from British rule have been over Kashmir.

Amid an unprecedented lockdown and flaring tensions in Jammu and Kashmir, as uncertainty looms large over a build-up of troops in the valley, the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) met on Monday for almost an hour.

Article 370 guarantees special status to Kashmir region, restricting the Indian state's legislative powers. The decision is likely to further damage New Delhi's relationship with its most restive state, its only Muslim-majority one, and ignite unrest there.

We also appeal to the people that whatsoever the provocations, we should protect those thousands of outside state laborers, who have come here to earn their livelihood and are working across the length and breadth of Kashmir.

Pakistan has rejected those assertions, but thousands of alarmed Indian tourists, pilgrims and workers streamed out of the region over the weekend.
