The report has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is very serious about Jammu & Kashmir and he wants to resolve the J&K issues before the general elections of 2019. “That Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to resolve the Jammu & Kashmir problem could be gauged from the fact that he wants to resolve the Jammu & Kashmir issues during his first term itself. It is possible that he may himself in a month or so declare division of Jammu & Kashmir into three parts. According to top sources in the PMO, Narendra Modi Government is working out a scheme that would lead to the state’s trifurcation. If all goes well, the Jammu & Kashmir’s map would be changed and Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh would be created as Union Territories”.
The report claimed that the ‘division’ of the Jammu & Kashmir state would lead to the ‘resolution’ of many problems. India’s ruling party BJP, knows that it can’t form a government in the Jammu & Kashmir state on its own and that it has to depend either on the National Conference or the People’s Democratic Party if it wants to share power.
Under such a situation, the Indian ruling Party can’t remove Article 370 of the constitution. An Indian officer at the PM Office claimed that the Modi government would divide the Jammu & Kashmir state before the general elections of 2019. “He (Modi) will himself announce this (controversial) decision to divide Jammu & Kashmir into three Union Territories of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh in next one or two months,” he said.
Why Article 370 cant be removed by BJP?
Clause 3 of Article 370 is clear. The President may, by public notification, declare that this Article shall cease to be operative but only on the recommendation of the Constituent Assembly of the State. In other words, Article 370 can be revoked only if a new Constituent Assembly of Jammu and Kashmir is convened and is willing to recommend its revocation that’s why BJP can’t remove article 370 from jammu & Kahmir. Article 370 can be removed only if same party government will come in power in J&K state as well as in centre which is totally impossible in case of J&K. Narendra Modi can’t form govt. with full majority in J&K.
As Example Central govt. Passed RTI act in parliament (both Loksabha & Rajyasabha) so it is now applicable all over India except Jammu & Kashmir State because J&K Constituent Assembly did not pass this bill. This is the power of article 370 gives the J&K state govt. If J& K Constituent Assembly does not want to pass any bill of central govt then it will not applicable in J&K. Same if Pm Modi passes the removal of Article 370 bill in parliament then newly formed Constituent Assembly will scrap this bill and it will become ineffective That’s why Pm Modi may divide J&K into three parts in next one or two months.
