Union minister Piyush Goyal has marked the first anniversary of the abrogation of Article 370 by posting a tweet which said that the move ushered in justice, peace and prosperity for common man.
“Ushering in justice, peace & prosperity for common man. PM @NarendraModi ji undid decades of darkness to bring development & opportunities to Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. Abrogating Article 370, HM @AmitShah ji unified nation & empowered people of these UTs to shape their future,” Goyal tweeted on Wednesday.
Article 370 was abrogated on August 5, 2019, which stripped erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir of its special status and split it into two union territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
A year later, the security situation in the region has not only stabilised but also progressively improved with more support from the people, multiple army, police, and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officers said.
