Arvind Kejriwal Backs Centre On Jammu And Kashmir Move 

New Delhi: The government today announced the scrapping of the Article 370, which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The move drew criticism from the opposition, except the AAP chief, Arvind Kejriwal. Mr Kejriwal stood out as the lone voice, among rivals, coming out in support of the government.

"We support the government on its decisions on Jammu and Kashmir. We hope this will bring peace and development in the state," Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister, tweeted.

Mr Kejriwal is seen as the vocal critic of PM Modi and BJP.  He also accussed the ruling BJP at the centre of trying to control Delhi through the Lieutenant Governor and ignoring the elected local government.

Home Minister Amit Shah said in parliament that President Ram Nath Kovind had signed off on an order that would come in place "at once".

"There should not be a delay of even a second to removing Article 370 from the Constitution," the Home Minister said, shouting above opposition protests.

The Home Minister also announced that Jammu and Kashmir would be bifurcated into two regions. The Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, like Delhi, will have an assembly. Ladakh will be a Union Territory without an assembly.
