NEW DELHI: The Lok Sabha on Friday passed the Jammu and Kashmir (Reservation) Bill and a statutory resolution to expand President's rule in Jammu and Kashmir by an additional six months.

The discussion on both the issues was clubbed in the lower house with Union Home Minister Amit Shah starting the discussion. The hours-long discussion saw Shah making a strong master improvement pitch for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)- drove government and cornering the Congress party on its administration record and historical job in the state.

"Head administrator Narendra Modi-drove government has zero resilience towards terrorism and we are completely dedicated to evacuate it. This zero resistance approach is for speeches as well as in the steps on the ground that we have taken," Shah told the House.

In his finishing up speech, Shah protected the proposal to expand the president's rule in the state on the grounds of the security situation.

"The Election Commission will accept an approach when to hold polls. We won't postpone per second in its lead the minute EC announces it," he included.

"President's rule was bolstered by Rajya Sabha on 3 January 2019, and that closures on 2 July 2019. That is the reason I am here with this bill and proposal before the House that for six months, President's rule is broadened because right now the legislative assembly doesn't exist," Shah said in the Lok Sabha.

"The Election Commission, as well, had discussions with the administration of Jammu and Kashmir and ideological groups and had considered the lawfulness situation. It also observed events like Ramzan, Amarnath Yatra and the EC concluded that they will take a decision on elections in the state not long from now," Shah included.

The Union bureau recently led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had endorsed the extension of President's rule on the grounds of the predominant situation in the state as place down in the report of the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir. The time of six months is with impact from 3 July one week from now.

The union home minister said during the residency of President's rule in J&K, terrorism has been handled strongly and the state has seen improvement on various fronts, including the direct of panchayat elections.

Shah's proposition drew sharp comments from the restriction seats, including Manish Tewari from Congress and N K Premachandran of the Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP). The two parliamentarians opposed the proposal saying that there was insufficient ground for the Union government to seek an extension of the President's rule.

"Congress has given a progressive state to succeeding governments in Jammu and Kashmir. It is the coalition of ideologically contrary parties which is responsible for the state of affairs in Jammu and Kashmir, where President's Rule is being sought so regularly," Tewari said, alluding to the collusion of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the People's Democratic Party (PDP).
