n what is being hailed as a historic move by the Narendra Modi-led UPA government, Article 370 has been nullified in Jammu and Kashmir. The state will no longer enjoy its special status, and all provisions of the Indian Constitution will be applicable to Jammu and Kashmir now on. The government has proposed Jammu and Kashmir be a Union Territory with legislature, and Ladakh as a separate Union Territory without legislature.
The move has been met with a wide range of reactions on social media. While several people have hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his ‘bold move’ in making Indian ‘one nation’, the decision has been met with severe criticism from Jammu and Kashmir ex-Chief Ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti.
Bollywood actors like Raveena Tandon and Vikrant Massey took to Twitter to congratulate the government for its decision.
While Raveena tweeted a series of Indian flag emojis, Vikrant Massey thanked Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the proposal to revoke Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.
