UAE ambassador to India and Sri Lankan PM support Indian govt’s decision to bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir, say ‘internal matter’

Home Minister Amit Shah stated that Article 370 has withheld Jammu and Kashmir from enjoying the developments that a modern, inclusive and advanced India has achieved.

The UAE ambassador to India, Dr Ahmad Al Banna has backed the Indian government’s move to effectively abolish Article 370 and move a bill to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories-Jammu and Kashmir with legislature and Ladakh without legislature.

Banna said that UAE has taken note of the Indian government’s decision of non-operationalisation of some sections of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

Defending Indian government’s measures, Banna said that reorganisation of states is a regular feature in the history of independent India & that it was primarily targeted at reducing regional disparity & improving efficiency. Banna further added that it is India’s internal matter as specified by the Indian Constitution.

The Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Ranil Wickremesinghe too has extended his support for the Indian government’s decision to convert Ladakh into a Union Territory. Stating that the reorganisation of Indian states is India’s internal matter, Ranil hailed Ladakh Union Territory as a first Indian state with Buddhist majority.

The government maintains that scrapping of archaic Article 370 will bring in peace, prosperity and hope to the region. Home Minister Amit Shah stated that Article 370 has withheld Jammu and Kashmir from enjoying the developments that a modern, inclusive and advanced India has achieved. He also claimed that the long age of violence and bloodshed in the valley will come to an end after the abrogation of Article 370.
