Relations between India and Pakistan have soured after the abrogation of Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. On August 5, the Parliament passed the bill to refabricate Jammu and Kashmir with a thumping majority. Opposition parties like YSR Congress, AAP, TDP, TRS, BJD, BSP and others supported the bill. However, Congress and JDU had voted against the bill.
