Article 370 Jammu and Kashmir: Restrictions have been put in place in J&K to ensure peace is maintained across the Valley. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is scheduled to visit Jammu and Kashmir today to oversee the security measures.
Resolution on Article 370, which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, has been moved in Lok Sabha today by Home Minister Amit Shah, a day after it got over two-thirds majority in the Rajya Sabha.
The resolution to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir to two Union Territories - J&K and Ladakh - has also been moved in the lower house of the parliament, where the government has a clear majority.
The state is under a lockdown and former chief ministers - Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti - were arrested on Monday soon after the two resolutions cleared Rajya Sabha. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba are in Jammu and Kashmir today to oversee the security measures.
