Article 370 which was drafted in 1947 by Sheikh Abdullah was removed on 5th of August 2019. The president of India issued a constitutional order on removing this article and making all the provisional orders of Indian constitution applicable on Jammu and Kashmir. Ladakh and Jammu & Kashmir are separated from each other and now there are 9 union territories in India instead of 7 which are –
- Jammu & Kashmir
- Daman & Diu
- Andaman & Nicobar Islands
- Dadra & Nagar Haveli
- Lakshadweep Islands.
Article 370 said that there are some rules and laws which are not directly applicable on Jammu & Kashmir Until they are passed by the State Assembly of Jammu & Kashmir.Under this article the rights of the outside people to come and settle in kashmir was very limited, no one has the right to buy any kind of property there, and no one can enjoy the rights like the citizens of the state. But now the government kicked out this law overnight and passed a new bill under which these things will not be applicable and the state will come under the country’s jurisdiction. This decision shocked every person in the country and mostly all the people were happy after this decision by the MODI government. Kashmiris may be a little sad thinking they will be outnumbered by other outsiders now.

With the removal of Article 370 and 35a many new opportunities can be created like setting up more public and private sector which will boost the economy and which will create more job opportunities for the youth and jobless people. This can be a great move in moving forward in economic development of the nation. There can be a lot more things and for that we have to wait and see what more government has to offer after this.
