Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday proposed revoking of Article 370 from Indian Constitution, which provides special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The announcement by Amit Shah evoked massive protest from the Opposition which asked the Union government to roll back the scrapping Jammu and Kashmir's special status order. 

 "I am presenting the resolution to revoke Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir except the first clause 370 (1)," Amit Shah said in the Parliament.

The PM Modi-led 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.
