The Jammu & Kashmir reorganization bill got cleared by the upper house( Rajya Sabha ) on 5 August, Monday. This bill divides Jammu & Kashmir into two union territories and the provisions containing the special status- 35 A & 370 are scrapped.
This bill got passed by 370 votes in favour and 70 against in the house.
It’s a historical decision to declare Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh as union territories.
The conversation by different leaders over Jammu and Kashmir has always been controversial.
Prime minister Narendra Modi congratulated Amit Shah and the political parties who were a part of debates around the bills for reorganizing Kashmir. He stated that the passage of bills were a tribute to Sardar Patel, BR Ambedkar and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee. He marked it as a momentous occasion in India’s parliamentary democracy.
Amit Shah stated that article 370 never helped kashmir. It always encouraged the terrorists . The laws banning child marriage and other malpractices couldnt reach kashmir due to the Article 370. He explained that a historic blunder is corrected by passing bill of unification of jammu and kashmir.
Our perspective :
According to us, this is one of the best decision taken by Indian government.
One flag representing Jammu and Kashmir would represent a Wholesome image of the Union territory.
This unification would be highly beneficial for the women. Those who married to a guy from the other state used to loose her rights but it won’t be the case now.
All the rules and regulations of India would be applied on Jammu & Kashmir.
Nobody could purchase land from Kashmir before application of this rule but now people have rights to invest and purchase the land which would significantly increase the infrastructure and stimulate the development.
This step to unification will also decrease the terror attacks and upgrade the status as a whole.
