So people everywhere are happy with the decisions and are praising the government's move. Article 370 gave a special status to the states of Jammu and Kashmir but now the state has been split into separate UTs. The Jammu and Kashmir government gives a nod for implementing any law in the state. The Article was included in the Constitution of India on October 17, 1949.
