In his televised address to the nation, PM Modi said the provision (Article 370) has not given anything to the erstwhile state of J&K except separatism, corruption and family rule, and that Pakistan has used it as a tool to spread terrorism. The PM termed the Centre’s decision to revoke Article 370 “historic” and said a new era has begun in Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
Earlier, many Bollywood celebrities took Twitter to express their opinion on the effective revocation of Article 370. Terming it a “historic step”, Kangana Ranaut said in a statement, “Scrapping of Article 370 was long due, and it is a historic step in the direction of a terrorism-free nation. I knew if any one could achieve this impossible feat that is Mr Modi. He is not only a visionary but he also has the required courage and strength of character to make unthinkable a reality. I congratulate entire Bharat including JnK on this historic day, we are together looking at a very bright future.”
Anupam Kher said he woke up to the best news of his life about Kashmir.
