NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Amit Shah welcomed the Supreme Court’s unanimous verdict affirming the President’s decision to revoke Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. In a post shared on social media X, Amit Shah emphasized that today’s verdict validates the constitutional nature of the Article 370 abrogation.
Amit Shah mentioned in his post that, “I welcome the Honorable Supreme Court of India’s verdict upholding the decision to abolish Article370.
On the 5th of August 2019, PM Narendra Modi took a visionary decision to abrogate Article370.
Since then peace and normalcy have returned to J&K. Growth and development have brought new meaning to human life in the valley once torn by violence. Prosperity in the tourism and agriculture sectors has raised the income levels of the residents of both Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
Today, the Supreme Court’s verdict has proved that the decision to abrogate Article370 was completely constitutional.”
Amit Shah responded following the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the President’s decision to scrap Article 370.
The Supreme Court held that Article 370 was an interim arrangement due to war conditions in the State. “Textual reading also indicates that Article 370 is a temporary provision,” said Chief Justice DY Chandrachud while reading the judgment.
I welcome the Honorable Supreme Court of India's verdict upholding the decision to abolish #Article370.
