Amit Shah Says, Article 370 Created Wall Between India And Kashmir, It Will Go 

New Delhi: Home Minister Amit Shah replied to the debate in the Lok Sabha on the government's move to end special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the state into two union territories and said that the Article 370 was the divide between India and Kashmir and it will now be gone forever.

"Article 370 had put doubts in the mind of people that Kashmir is a part of India," the Home Minister said.

The Home Minister accussed the former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru of taking Kashmir to the United Nation and were it not for him, then PoK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) would not have existed.

"Who took Kashmir to the United Nations, it was Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru? History will decide if this decision (to revoke special status under Article 370) is right or not, but whenever it will be discussed, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be remembered by the people," said Amit Shah. The Prime Minister was present in the Lok Sabha.

"Neither the BJP nor Narendra Modi can give up PoK. Our claim on PoK is as strong as it was earlier," he said.

Rajya Sabha where the government is short of a majority, had passed the bill to reorganise Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories. The decision was taken with several opposition parties walking out and others siding with the government, like Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party, Naveen Patnaik's Biju Janata Dal, Jagan Reddy's YSR Congress, N Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party and Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party.
