Issues over article 370

Issuesover article 370

It would be good to understand the background of Article 370 of the Indian constitution which gave special status to Jammu & Kashmir. Article 370 was temporary, transitional with special provisions. Whereas Article 35A was meant for residents of Jammu & Kashmir with a separate set of laws including those of citizenship and fundamental rights and ownership of the property in that state.


On August 5, 2019 Government of India has superseded both provisions and both clauses of Article 370 & 35A have become inoperative and now State of Jammu & Kashmir have become Union Territories and Ladakh being separate Union Territory.

Now Jammu & Kashmir can make their own rules for permanent residency, ownership of property and fundamental rights. Present Government says that they have scrapped the provisions of Article 370 so that Kashmir can be integrated with rest of India. Whereas the critics of the Government are of the view that the Kashmir issue is continuing to burn and the present Government is unnecessarily going with the issue to avoid the side effects of Economic slowdown.

On the ground people in general are abiding with the laws but opposition is not buying the points of the Government.

Hopefully in the months to come people of Jammu & Kashmir will come up for the cause of Nation and all will be settled for growth of economy.
