In the recent weeks, most of the political parties in Jammu and Kashmir barring BJP has demanded statehood back as promised by the government on the floor of the house.
On August 5, 2019, in the parliament not only the central government abrogated article 370 the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir State but they divided the state into two union territories.
While the debate was going on, the government assured the house that Jammu and Kashmir will get back its statehood very soon but made it clear that the union territory of Ladakh will not be part of this state.
In the current session of the parliament, the voices from Jammu and Kashmir both in upper and lower houses have appealed to the government to bring the bill for the statehood for the Jammu and Kashmir as promised by them.
There has been a lot of silence from BJP leadership to restore the statehood of Jammu and Kashmir as their local leaders in Jammu had said that statehood was directly linked with the peace.
BJP leadership has indicated that at least for now union territory status is going to continue. The local leaders of BJP are saying that they will only press for the statehood when the delimitation commission will complete worth in Jammu and Kashmir.
