The Home Minister of India Amit Shah has made a huge announcement in Rajya Sabha today. Amit Shah proposed to remove Article 370. He said that all sections of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir would not be applicable. Along with this, Article 35-A has also been removed. The President has also given clearance to remove 35A. Amit Shah also presented the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Bill in the House. The bill for removing Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir has been passed from Rajya Sabha.
What Is Article 370?
Article 370 is a ‘Temporary, Transitional, and special provision’ which gives autonomous status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir. There are many issues and disadvantages of Article 370 like India can’t develop Kashmir because there is a lack of industrial sector and medical facilities. No Indian citizen from other states of India can’t buy land or property in Jammu and Kashmir. This led to unemployment, poverty, and corruption in Jammu and Kashmir. Under Article 370, the center has no power to declare a financial emergency under Article 370 in the state. It can declare an emergency in the state only in case of war or external aggression.
Five Historic Decisions
1. Article 370 removed from Jammu and Kashmir
2. Article 35A is also removed from Jammu and Kashmir.
3. Jammu Kashmir has been divided into two parts.

This will help localities to get employment. Tourism will increase and local people will get more benefits. Modi Government has fulfilled its promise of removing Article 370.
