The bill was passed in Rajya Sabha, yesterday after an intense fight of words between the Amit Shah and the leader of the opposition who continued to raise a question on the security of Kashmiri people as to why Section 144 of CrPC is imposed in the valley.

Meanwhile, Government Sources said on the situation in Jammu & Kashmir post-revocation of Article 370, “There is peace and normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir. It has been event-free, no agitations held. People also moving about for essential work”, reported news agency ANI.

Also, Amit Shah in Rajya Sabha slammed those who advocate for Article 370 and said, “You stand here in Parliament and say bloodshed will happen in Kashmir… what message are you sending to the valley? You want them to continue living in the 18th-century system, don’t people there have the right to live in the 21st-century? Those who provoke have kids studying in London and the US”.
