J&K to get statehood at appropriate time: HM Amit Shah in LS

New Delhi, Feb 13 (ANI): “Statehood would be given to Jammu & Kashmir at an appropriate time,” said Home Minister Amit Shah during the Lok Sabha session on February 13. This comes after some Member of Parliament said that Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2021 won't give statehood to Jammu and Kashmir. Home Minister Amit Shah said, “Many MPs said that bringing Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2021 means J&K won't get statehood. I am piloting the Bill, I brought it. I have clarified the intentions. Nowhere it’s written that J&K won't get statehood. Where are you drawing conclusion from. I have said in this House and I say it again that this Bill has got nothing to do with the statehood of Jammu & Kashmir. Statehood would be given to Jammu & Kashmir at an appropriate time.”
