Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday moved resolution to revoke Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, which provides special status to the state, in the Rajya Sabha. Addressing the upper house, he said that Article 370 was scrapped through Constitution (Application to Jammu and Kashmir) Order 2019, signed by President Ram Nath Kovind.

The Home Minister also added that the committee for restructuring of Jammu and Kashmir will be reinstated. Jammu and Kashmir will be a Union territory with a legislature, Ladakh will be a Union territory without a legislature, he added.

The Congress has moved adjournment motions in both Lok Sabha as Rajya Sabha while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) issued a whip asking all MPs to remain present from August 5 to August 7.
