WHY (as per the govt.)

Salient Points ()

The bill will enable the availability of officers in J and K who have experience of running union territory administration.

This will also increase the strength of officers in the union territories of J & K and Leh.

There is a huge deficiency of officers in the region and merger of cadre will help J & K.

There is constant threat from Pakistan and China. So it is important to keep J & K under centre and not state government. 

WHY NOT (as per opposition)

Salient Points ()

There is no need of merging J & K with AGMUT, when the present cadre is doing well.

Ghulam Nabi Azad

Why is government still treating J & K as union territory and not giving its statehood back.
