NSA Ajit Doval meets J&K Governor in Srinagar

Srinagar, Aug 6 (UNI/IBNS) Ajit Doval, National Security Advisor, on Tuesday met Governor Satya Pal Malik at Raj Bhavan here.

Malik and Doval discussed the prevailing external and internal security situation in the State in the aftermath of developments in Parliament relating to Jammu and Kashmir.

Both of them stressed the need for ensuring the safety of the general public and emphasised constant alertness, preparedness and synergy among various departments to meet any unforeseen situation.

In a landmark day which witnessed day-long debates, the Rajya Sabha on Monday passed the Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019 which proposes to bifurcate the terror-hit northern state into two Union Territories - J&K, a Union Territory with Legislative Assembly, and Ladakh, a UT without Legislative Assembly.

Also the Modi government scrapped Article 35 A and Article 370 which were used to give Jammu and Kashmir a special status.

Article 35A of the Indian Constitution allows the Jammu and Kashmir state's legislature to define “permanent residents” of the state and also provides special rights and privileges to those permanent residents.

Article 370 allows Jammu and Kashmir to have its own constitution, flag and right to handle its own laws except on matters that impact national security.
