Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru himself during his address to a special delegation (on Kashmir) said that Article 370 of the Constitution will disappear by getting eroded and eroded (Samvidhaan ki dhara 370 ghiste ghiste ghis jaegi). Why his party is making making fuss now?
Article 370 basically served only one purpose, and that is to create a wedge between Kashmir and the rest of India. But, that’s all in the past now.
Congress party has disgusted Indians with its third rate politics.

The reason for making J&K a UT is, without the police or the IAS directly under the boots of the Abdullahs or the Muftis, their capacity to make money or create mischief will be severely limited.
It took us 70 long years to undo a glaring wrong and a monumental mistake committed by our leaders of the past but finally that day has come and it isn’t a day too soon.
J&K turning into a union territory will help the center to gain a stronghold in the region with the police and other departments under its home ministry.
