    In what is being hailed as a historic move by the Narendra Modi-led UPA government, Article 370 has been scrapped in Jammu and Kashmir, which means its special autonomous status has been revoked. If reports are to be believed, the government has proposed Jammu and Kashmir be a Union Territory with legislature, and Ladakh as a separate Union Territory without legislature.
