Modi government redrew the map of Jammu and Kashmir in a historic move on Monday and stripped the state of its special status by scrapping Article 370. The govt has also moved to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories – Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir. Amit Shah has now taken up the matter in Lok Sabha. NSA Ajit Doval is in Kashmir to review the ground situation and has said that locals are happy with the move. Before making the big announcement, Centre had rushed an additional 38,000 troops to the Valley and another batch of 8,000 personnel was sent on Monday after the announcement. Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik reviewed the security situation and emphasised the need for constant alertness and preparedness to deal with any eventuality. Top political leaders of Kashmir such as Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and others were arrested on Monday night.
