Meanwhile, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti beamoned the government's decision to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution and described it as "the darkest day in Indian democracy". 

 

Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday announced that the contentious Article 370 and Article 35A would be revoked. The government also proposed to reorganize Jammu and Kashmir, carving out two separate Union Territories of Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir. The Union Territory for Jammu and Kashmir will have a legislature but there will be no Assembly in Ladakh, Shah said in a statement. He said this had been done in view of constant threats of cross border terrorism. The UT of Ladakh was a long pending demand of the people of the region and the decision was aimed at fulfilling the aspiration of the local population, the Minister said.
