The Indian government on 5th August abrogated Article 370 that gave separate status to erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. While most people have welcomed the decision, the separatists and the Pakistanis have been opposing the move. A few Congress leaders were also not too happy with the idea of Jammu and Kashmir being fully integrated into India without any terms and conditions and riders attached.
