Article 370 Abrogation: About three years ago, the Modi government took a big decision to abolish Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, was abrogated on 5 August 2019. Prime Minister Narendra Modi could not take steps in this direction during his first term, but during his second term, he surprised everyone by taking this big step. By the way, this demand was being raised by the BJP for a long time.
After this big decision taken by the Modi government, many changes are visible in Jammu and Kashmir. However, a new assembly has not yet been formed in the state. The constitution of the assembly has been delayed due to the fresh delimitation. By the way, it has been said from the Central Government that soon after holding elections in the state, steps will be taken towards the formation of a new assembly. In such a situation, it is important to know that after the abrogation of Article 370, what is the atmosphere of Jammu and Kashmir and what changes are being felt in the atmosphere there.
stone pelters’ evening
Incidents of stone pelting have come down significantly in Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier, incidents of stone pelting took place in the valley even over trivial matters and army personnel and policemen were targeted. Often such incidents used to happen on Friday during the day of Jummah. Now the Jammu and Kashmir administration has tightened the noose against the elements involved in these incidents. There has also been a ban on the issuance of passports to people involved in stone pelting and other anti-national activities. Even in government appointments, security agencies have refused to give green signal to such elements. Due to this, the efforts of those who carried out the stone pelting incident by seducing the youth of Jammu and Kashmir seem to be failing.
Tighten the noose on terrorists
A major change has also been shown in Jammu and Kashmir that there has been a significant reduction in incidents of terrorism. During the last 3 years, security agencies have killed hundreds of terrorists and destroyed their hideouts. Now the process of handing over the bodies of terrorists to their families has also been ended. The leadership crisis in terrorist organizations has also arisen due to the killing of the commanders of many terrorist organizations. Getting money and weapons from across the border to terrorists has also been stopped to a great extent.
Before the abrogation of Article 370, extremist and terrorist groups were completely dominating the valley, but now the atmosphere is changing. The masters of terrorist organizations are not getting a chance to interfere in Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan. The activities of the separatist group have also come to a complete standstill. This is the reason that frustrated terrorists have started carrying out incidents of target killing in Jammu and Kashmir, but security agencies are now taking strict measures against it too.
increased interest of investors
After the abrogation of Article 370, traders and industrialists had called for a shutdown for some time in the initial phase and it had a great impact on business activities. With the passage of time, now the situation has completely changed and business activities are also intensifying.
Due to the implementation of domicile rule in the state, employment and business opportunities have increased. People from outside the state are also now showing interest in investing in the Valley and it is believed that it will have a big impact in the coming days.
efforts to increase political activity
Strong efforts are also being made to increase political activities in the state. After the finalization of the delimitation process, the assembly elections are expected in the state. It has also been clarified from the central government that it is very serious about the formation of a new assembly in the state.
The Prime Minister has also organized an all-party meeting to know the opinion of the leaders of various political parties of the state. However, during this meeting, leaders of some regional parties also raised the issue of restoration of Article 370 and 35A. The Modi government has already clarified its stand in this regard. It is believed that the government will soon take strong steps towards new elections in the state.
Got a chance to buy land in the valley
Permission to buy land has been given by the Central Government and people from outside the Valley to buy non-cultivable land in Kashmir. Earlier only the people of Jammu and Kashmir were allowed to do this. Now the door of Jammu and Kashmir has been opened for the people from outside the state as well.
Arrangements have been made to make such men from other states as permanent residents who have married a girl from Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier, the woman’s husband and his children were not considered as permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir, but now the system has completely changed.
Your lovely tricolor on the buildings of Jammu and Kashmir
At present, the Amrit Mahotsav of the country’s independence is being celebrated and the tricolor campaign from house to house is being run vigorously. After the abrogation of Article 370, the government buildings of Jammu and Kashmir are also seen waving their beloved tricolor with pride.
Only 20 days after the abrogation of Article 370, the tricolor was hoisted by removing the flag of Jammu and Kashmir from the Secretariat in Srinagar. Now the national flag is being hoisted at all government offices and constitutional institutions in the valley. It is a strange irony that even after so many years of independence, the tricolor was not visible in Jammu and Kashmir, but now the situation has completely changed.
