Apart from scrapping Article 370, the BJP also redrew the state's map. It bifurcated the state between two Union Territories- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. While the former will have a legislature, the latter will not have one.
BJP pulled a courageous move. What will happen next?
BJP, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, pulled off a huge gamble with this announcement.
Sensing that the decision could lead to unrest, Centre deployed heavy forces in the valley, asked tourists to head back, and even took an unprecedented decision by putting prominent politicians under house arrest.
It's left to be seen how this decision pans out in the next couple of days.
