According to the Union Minister, Article 370 was meant to be a transitory provision in the Indian Constitution, and its extension had two negative outcomes that were detrimental to our country.

He stated that firstly, it fostered an ethos of separatism, violence, and terrorism, posing a security concern for the entire nation. Secondly, it obstructed the extension of highly progressive laws to Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh during that period.

The special status of Jammu and Kashmir was revoked and the State was divided into two Union Territories after the Indian government revoked Article 370 of the Constitution in August 2019.
