@VPSecretariat
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said that Article 370 of the Constitution has been abrogated to ensure all-round development and extend benefits to the people of the newly-created Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.

He said this while interacting with Lithuanian President, Gitanas Nauseda during his three-nation tour to the Baltic region. Mr Naidu is scheduled to visit Latvia and Estonia. 

During his meeting with Mr. Nauseda in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania on the first leg of his tour, Mr Naidu asserted that the reorganization was aimed at reducing regional disparity and improving administrative efficiency.


The Vice President also explained that the reorganization of Jammu and Kashmir was completely within the purview of the Government of India. Mr Naidu also thanked the Government of Lithuania for extending its support and solidarity in condemning the Pulwama terrorist attack.
