New Delhi:13 Feb 21 Jammu and Kashmir will be given statehood “at an appropriate time”, Home Minister Amit Shah said Saturday, during a Lok Sabha discussion on the J&K Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2021.Responding to claims that passing an amendment to the 2019 bill – which split the former state into two union territories after Article 370 was withdrawn – meant the centre had no intention of restoring statehood, a furious Mr Shah said he had “clarified the intentions” of the bill.”Many MPs said bringing the amendment means J&K won’t get statehood. I am piloting the bill, I brought it. I have clarified the intentions. Nowhere is it written that Jammu and Kashmir won’t get statehood. Where are you drawing this conclusion from?” Mr Shah asked of the opposition.
