Article 370 in J&K gave rise to terrorism, says Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb

Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir gave rise to extremism and terrorism in the country, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has said, insisting that the abrogation of its provisions is the “boldest decision” taken by any government after Independence.

The BJP government, with this “historic” move, has fulfilled the “long-cherished dream of Syama Prasad Mukherjee”, Deb said on August 6 night outside party headquarters.

Congratulating Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the passage of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill in Parliament, Deb, who is also the state unit president of the BJP, observed that “rules cannot be different for people living in the same country”.

“Article 370 in Kashmir had given rise to extremism and terrorism in the country. Its abrogation is the boldest decision taken by any government after Independence,” he said.
