Article 370 gone, Jammu  Kashmir UT status on: Top developments of historic day

Narendra Modi government on Monday moved to dramatically alter the status quo in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir. The government ended days of speculation by making public its decision to effectively revoke the controversial Article 370 of the Indian Constitution and to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.

Article 370 accords special status to Jammu and Kashmir, allowing the state to have its own constitution, flag and rights. On Monday morning, home minister Amit Shah rose in Rajya Sabha to announce that the government was moving a Presidential order for Parliament's ratification.



The Presidential order used a clause of Article 370 to say that provisions of Article 370 would no longer be applicable in Jammu and Kashmir, a move that essentially revokes the article without actually doing so.

In a follow-up, but equally bold move, Amit Shah also said the government was moving a bill to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories -- Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. While the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir would have a legislature, a la Delhi.

The Narendra Modi government's historic decision on Jammu and Kashmir, which ranks among the most unprecedented political moves in the country, will be debated for days, even weeks to come. Here is everything you need to know about what happened on Monday.
