Part 2: What Does the Bifurcation of J&K Mean for Its Future?
Remember, remember the fifth of August. It doesn’t have the same ring as “remember, remember the fifth of November”.
But it WILL be remembered. 5 August 2019 will go down as the day the Indian government scrapped Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution. The day the Centre passed a bill to divide Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.
The J&K Reorganisation Bill divides the state into the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and the Union Territory of Ladakh.
What happens now that the state has been bifurcated? That’s what we’ll tell you on the second part of out two-part Big Story podcast.
