Article 370 scrapped; Ladakh, J&K to be Union Territories

Sting Newz Service: Home Minister Amit Shah also put forth a statement informing that Ladakh will now be given the status of Union Territory, while Jammu and Kashmir will be a separate Union Territory.

Amid the confusion over the deployment of security forces and the imposition of Section 144 in Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister Amit Shah scrapped Article 370 on the floor of Rajya Sabha Monday. “Not all provisions of Article 370 will be applicable in Kashmir,” he said. The proposal evoked massive protest from the Opposition which asked the Union government to roll back the order.

Along with this proposal, the Home Minister also put forth a statement informing that Ladakh will now be given the status of Union Territory, while Jammu and Kashmir will be a separate Union Territory.

Late Sunday night, mainstream party leaders – NC leaders Omar and Farooq Abdullah, and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, among others – were placed under house arrest and mobile, broadband internet and cable TV services were entirely shut down. (Courtesy: Indian Express)
