Lok Sabha passes J&K Reorganisation Bill with 370 votes for and 70 against it


A day after the Rajya Sabha passed the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, Lok Sabha gave its massive nod to it and paved the way for the state to be bifurcated into two separate Union Territories.

Home Minister Amit Shah was in the spotlight once again as he tabled the bill and made an earnest appeal in its favour and in favour of abrogation of Article 370.

With the abrogation of Article 370, the special status for Jammu and Kashmir will be done away with, ensuring complete integration of the region into India. Jammu and Kashmir will not have a separate flag and all Indian citizens will be allowed to buy or sell property in the region. The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill will now go the President for his signature.
