J&K LIVE Updates: Resolution revoking Article 370 from J&K passed by the Lok Sabha

A day after the Centre scrapped the special status to Jammu and Kashmir guaranteed under Article 370 of the Constitution through a presidential resolution, Union Home Minister Amit Shah moved the same resolution and the Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019, in Lok Sabha on Tuesday.

While moving the resolution in Lok Sabha, Shah said, “Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of Union of India. Kashmir ki seema mein PoK bhi aata hai…Jaan de denge iske liye!”

The Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019 seeks to divide the state of J&K into two Union Territories — Ladakh and Jammu & Kashmir.

Shah will also introduce the Jammu & Kashmir Reservation (Second Amendment) Bill 2019.
