Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu on Monday decided to delay Zero Hour submissions listed for the day due to scheduled "Urgent Legislative Business"

PDP's Rajya Sabha lawmaker Nazir Ahmad Laway has given Zero Hour notice in the Upper House over Kashmir issue. The PDP MPs were seen wearing black bands on their right hands.

Unfazed by the opposition, Home Minister Amit Shah tabled resolutions scrapping Article 370 under which the state had separate laws and provisions that barred people from rest of India from buying land and settling down in the state.

The order will supersede the Constitution (Application to Jammu and Kashmir) Order, 1954 as amended from time to time.

Raina said that the leaders of "National Conference, Congress and PDP" are "always singing the tones of anti-national forces."

Udhampur Deputy Commissioner Piyush Singla said academic institutions in the district will remain closed on Monday till further orders.

The tensions in the Valley emerged after the Jammu and Kashmir administration scrapped the Amarnath Yatra and asked pilgrims and tourist to leave the state, citing security threats from terrorists backed by the Pakistan Army.

The government said the step to issue an advisory to tourists was taken after it received intelligence inputs about a possible terrorist attack on Amarnath pilgrimage.

Kashmir has been on the edge in the wake of a massive security build-up and state government's advisory to Amarnath pilgrims and tourists urging them to curtail their visit.

Responding to the developments in Jammu and Kashmir, he questioned the alleged arrest of leaders and said, "if we alienate them, who's left?"
