Our stance has not changed, Article 370 is a temporary provision: Home Minister Amit Shah in Lok Sabha

"Our stance on Jammu and Kashmir has and will remain constant. There has been no change in our position on Article 370. We have always maintained that Article 370 is only a temporary provision in our Constitution", Shah said in the Lok Sabha

Union Home Minister Amit Shah, during his speech in the Lower House of the Parliament, made it clear that Article 370 is only a temporary provision and that there has been no change in the stance of the party on the issue.

Shah said, “Our stance on Jammu and Kashmir has and will remain constant. There has been no change in our position on Article 370. We have always maintained that Article 370 is only a temporary provision in our Constitution.”

The Home Minister’s statement is significant as there are great expectations from him with regards to the instability in Kashmir. People have been subjecting every statement and every comment of his to great scrutiny. Under such circumstances, his reiteration of the stance that Article 370 is a temporary provision is likely to ruffle many feathers and make a lot of politicians in Kashmir extremely uncomfortable.

During the speech in the Parliament, he also attacked Jawaharlal Nehru and blamed the Congress party for the instability in Kashmir. Taking a jibe at Congress MP Manish Tewari, who had claimed that situation in J&K was better under Congress government, Shah asserted that the enduring problem of Jammu and Kashmir is a legacy of the monumental mistakes made by then PM Jawaharlal Nehru.

Amit Shah has moved the J&K Reservation (Amendment Bill) in the Lok Sabha today. The Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2019 amends the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Act, 2004, which provides for reservation in appointment and admission in professional institutions for persons belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and socially and educationally backward classes. The Bill was passed by the Lok Sabha.
