Abrogation of Article 370: Domestic and Global Implications – PDC-5
The special status granted to Kashmir through Article 370 and Article 35A was removed to integrate the region with the mainland. The move is also expected to bring in economic development and remove elements of terror. The history and legality of the entire process have been much debated. However, there is a need to explore the Centre’s decision and its implications of various dimensions. Why was Article 370 necessary? If it was constitutionally “temporary”, why did it take nearly 70 years to revoke the provision? How will the abrogation of Article 370 impact states under Article 371 A and G? Above all, what does it mean for the future of India’s federal structure and its Centre- State relations?
