J&K's special status scrapped, bifurcation bill in Lok Sabha today

A day after the Centre announced the President's decision to revoke Jammu and Kashmir's special status, the Lok Sabha will take up a bill to bifurcate the state. The proposed legislation envisions two Union Territories, Jammu-Kashmir with a legislature, and Ladakh, without an Assembly. The bill secured the Rajya Sabha's clearance on Monday. The move is part of the core ideology of the Bharatiya Janata Party which has traditionally opposed the autonomy accorded to Jammu and Kashmir, and pushed for closer integration with the rest of the nation. Many Opposition parties backed the Central government's move on Monday. Watch the full video for more.
