“A Landmark Move!” Sports Fraternity reacts as Gov abrogates Article 370

The Central Government, on Monday, scrapped Article 370 of the Constitution which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, with an order stating that “it shall come into force at once”. The revocation followed the Centre’s introduction of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Bill in the Parliament.

Announcouncing the historical decision, Union Home Minister Amit Shah also said the government had decided to bifurcate the volatile state into two Union Territories viz., Jammu and Kashmir (which will have a legislature) and Ladakh (without a legislature).

Honourable President Ram Nath Kovind executed his power under Clause 1 of Article 370. The presidential order has also done away with sections under Article 35A that provides special privileges to permanent residents of the state along with defining the term “permanent residents”.

“Under Article 370 there is a provision that the President may by public notification declare that this article shall cease to be operative… from such date as he may specify… Because there is President’s rule, all decisions of the Assembly will be taken by the House and we can pass the order with majority,” Shah said in the Upper House.
