Article 370 was included in the Indian constitution back on October 17, 1949, a couple of years later after India’s independence. The law gave the state of Jammu and Kashmir a special status. Most of the rules there were different from the ones followed in the other states of India. It even had a separate flag. But over the last few years, the condition in the state has become abject.

On August 5, 2019, J&K underwent a major change. Article 370 was abolished and the Indian tri-color would be flying there. Kashmir has been divided into two union territories- J&K and Ladakh. Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, put forth the development in the Rajya Sabha. The decision turned out to be historic and it was welcomed by people from every nook and corner of the country.

Even the cricketing fraternity lauded the Indian government, led by Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Sushma Swaraj, who passed away on Tuesday following a cardiac arrest, dropped a tweet for the PM as well. In the meantime, Harsha Bhogle, the popular cricket journalist, was over the moon after the epic move. He dropped a couple of tweets to express his delight and ecstasy.

In his first tweet, Bhogle wrote, “I look forward to the opportunities that we can offer to our brothers & sisters in Kashmir & Ladakh. They too, like this fabulous young generation in India, must dream of careers, of prosperity, of success, not just in their state but all across India. It is our responsibility.

Replying to his first tweet, Bhogle wrote, “It is a wonderful time to be young in India. I see so much energy and ambition. It should be a wonderful time to be young in Kashmir and Ladakh too.”

However, a few of the residents of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh don’t feel that it’s a happy time for them. The people there reckon that it’s the worst time in their history and India has failed to keep its promises. As it can be seen, Bhogle’s tweets weren’t taken in a positive manner.
