Jammu and Kashmir Highlights: Amit Shah’s speech on Article 370 highlights injustices of past, says PM Modi

By HT Correspondent | Hindustan Times, New Delhi
UPDATED ON AUG 06, 2019 12:09 AM IST

The Union Government on Monday moved a resolution in Rajya Sabha to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution that gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir. Amit Shah blamed the dynastic politics of J-K for pushing back the development of Kashmiris. He also added that revocation of Article 370 will kickstart the development of Kashmir. Congress lawmakers Kapil Sibal and former finance minister P Chidambaram said history will not forgive the government for revoking Article 370. AIADMK, AAP and Shiv Sena hailed the Centre’s decision on Article 370. RSS has congratulated BJP on the revocation of Article 370. Members of the Congress, TMC and DMK squat on the floor of the House while one of the PDP members tore his clothes and then along with another PDP member tore copies of the Constitution after Union Home Minister Amit Shah proposed the revocation of Article 370 in the Rajya Sabha, urging Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to order that they be physically removed. Here are the highlights:
