PM Modi describes passing of Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Bill 2019 as momentous occasion

PTI
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hailed the passing of landmark bills pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir in Parliament, with overwhelming support.

Saluting the courage and resilience of the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh, Mr Modi, in a series of tweets, said, a better tomorrow awaits them. He stated that the Bills pertaining to Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh will ensure integration and empowerment. 

Earlier, Parliament had adopted the resolution revoking the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Constitution, with Lok Sabha approving it last evening. The Rajya Sabha had adopted a similar resolution on Monday.

The Lok Sabha also passed The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019 through voting.  Replying to the debate, Home Minister Amit Shah said that scrapping of Article 370 is essential as it is a hurdle in connecting Kashmir to India's mainstream. 

Mr Shah reiterated that Pakistan occupied Kashmir will always belong to India. Mr Shah said that as soon as the situation normalises, at an appropriate time, Jammu and Kashmir will regain state status.

The Minister assured that Narendra Modi government has no intention of removing Article 371, which gives special status to North eastern states to preserve their tribal culture. He added that Naga Accord and Article 370 have no relation at all.
