Article 370

As Modi 2.0 nears completion of 1 year in power, we look back at some big-bang decisions which changed the country forever.

Abdullah told media persons: "Today I don't have words. I am free today. Now, I will be able to go to Delhi and attend Parliament and speak for you all."

The five-judge Constitution bench of the Apex Court, headed by Justice N V Ramana, refused to refer the petitions to a larger bench.

The business delegation also told envoys that restoration of peace in Jammu and Kashmir is key to fast-paced development.

A three-judge Bench of Justice NV Ramana will hear the plea filed by Sara Abdullah Pilot, Omar's sister and wife of Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, who said the order of detention is manifestly illegal and there is no question of him being a "threat to the maintenance of public order".

In his reply in Rajya Sabha, PM Modi said: "Honestly, I was a bit disappointed with some of the remarks. Some members have made stagnation a virtue. They were stuck in the same old ways, talking about the same old things of the past."

A five-Judge Constitution Bench of Justices NV Ramana, SK Kaul, R Subhash Reddy, BR Gavai and Surya Kant on Wednesday heard petitions which were filed after the central government scrapped Article 370 in August last year and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories -- Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Naqvi is in Srinagar as part of a massive outreach by the central government, over two months after Jammu and Kashmir formally became a Union Territory on October 31 last year. The erstwhile state was stripped of its special status under Article 370 of the Constitution on August 5.

Shah drew a parallel between the opposition and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and said that they speak the same language.

While the Citizenship Amendment Act remains on the agenda, the ministers would hold meetings with people to share their views on bifurcation of the state into two union territories after the abrogation of Article 370.
