Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Ladakh said that he welcome the Bill to bifurcate the current state of Jammu and Kashmir on behalf of everyone in Ladakh.
“People there wanted the region to be a Union Territory. People in Ladakh wanted that the region be freed from the dominance & discrimination of Kashmir, that is happening today,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.
Meanwhile, Satish Chandra Mishra, Bahujan Samaj Party MP said in Rajya Sabha, “Our party gives complete support. We want that the Bill be passed. Our party is not expressing any opposition to Article 370 Bill & the other Bill.”
On the other hand, Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) will not be supporting the Bill. Party member KC Tyagi said, “Our chief Nitish Kumar is carrying forward the tradition of JP Narayan, Ram Manohar Lohia, and George Fernandes. So our party is not supporting the Bill moved in the Rajya Sabha today. We have different thinking. We want that Article 370 should not be revoked.
