New Delhi: The Cabinet meeting that cleared the proposal to scrap Article 370 and bifurcation of the state lasted “just seven minutes”, reported Hindustan Times.

According to Hindustan Times, a person privy to the matter said: “The moment Amit Shah referred to Article 370, ministers started thumping the desk. It was an emotional moment in the cabinet meeting. Most of those who are in Modi’s cabinet follow the ideology of Shyama Prasad Mookerjee, who gave his life for the integration of Kashmir with the rest of India.”

The move by the Modi government was closely guarded between Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and few others.
