Why BJP Government revoked Article 370 & 35A.
What are the special benefits Jammu & Kashmir is enjoying so far.
Central Government can implement any rule in any state in India, but needs permission from the assembly of Jmmu & Kashmir, except in the areas of Defense, Foreign Affairs & Communication needs permission.
Jammu & Kashmir uses 2 flags. State flag and Indian flag. All government vehicles & buildings carry 2 flags. If Jammu & Kashmir citizens disrespect Indian flad no action.
Whoever lived 10 years before 1954 gets Jammu & Kashmir citizenship.
Indian citizens can not buy property in Jammu & Kashmir. No private investors can go and build useful hospitals, colleges and business for the people.
People have 2 citizenships. Indian and Jammu and Kashmir. It is exception for them and illegal for other states.
Central Government can impose emergency in any state but it can impose emergency in Jammu & Kashmir only during war.
State Government jobs, political portfolios and scholarships for only Jammu and Kashmir citizens.
Jammu and Kashmir girl marries Indian boy she loses Jammu and Kashmir citizenship. In other case Jammu and Kashmir girl marries Pakistani boy she keeps her citizenship. If Pakistani boy marries Jammu and Kashmir girl he gets Indian citizenship. Simple logic for Pakistan’s can get Indian citizenship.
Jammu and Kashmir is not a state and it is treated as 2 parts. Now have 2 Union territories Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. Jammu and Kashmir will have CM and and other positions like Delhi. Let Governor is the head. Ladakh will be under Central Government control.
It has taken 70 years for Central Government to revoke article 370. Most of the regional parties including YSRCP, AIADMK, TDP supported BJP. Congress party is not happy with BJP’s decision. BJP added this in constitutional change in their election manifesto and came to power.
As part of their election manifesto they have removed Article 370 & 35/A from constitution. They have moved military to Jammu & Kashmir. They have suspended the internet. They wanted to make sure no damage or casualties to the people of Jammu & Kashmir. It is daring step taken by Narendra Modi and Amit Shah led BJP Government. People may have different opinions on Demonetization and GST. Modi may not convinced entire nation when he implemented GST & Demonetization. Revoking article 370 is very special. BJP got support from not only its political allies but also from some opposition parties.
People will see whether the change is good for the country or not in near future. India has 28 states and 9 Union Territories.
