Mikhail Gorbachev of India!

Modi—The Mikhail Gorbachev of India–has spurred the disintegration of Illegitimate, Fragile India by abrogating Article 370 for IO-Kashmir!

A Prominent Indian Newspaper, a few years back, reported that there are numerous active secessionist movements in 22, out of 29, Indian states. Some other sources present, a by names, list of 135 separatist movements including numerous insurgencies, raging in various states and union territories of India.

The difference between a state and a Union Territory

Kashmir will be a UT with a legislature like Delhi and Pondicherry, while Ladakh will be a UT without such a legislature. {UTs without legislature are more of an integral constituent of the federating Center than those with a legislature}

Up until recently, there were 29 states and 7 Union Territories of India. However, after the illegal bifurcation of Kashmir, [should India succeed by chance] there will be 28 states and 8 Union Territories.

Multiple states, many in the northeast, enjoy a special status/provisions, under the Article – 370 of the Indian constitution. Some of these states are Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Sikkim, Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra and Gujarat. After the illegal annexation of Jammu/Kashmir and Ladakh [should it be successful], there will be 8 UTs and 28 states. 

Under the Indian Constitution, states are having a quasi-autonomous, perforated-bonding (loosely federated with the Center) status thereunder the federal government cannot legislate on many of state’s internal matters; hence de jure empowering these states, to pass the laws to secede, from the botched Union, at will. The only way to stop them from seceding would be by the use of military muscles as is being witnessed in the (Disputed, Indian Occupied) Kashmir.

First Union Territories (administrative units) were, the-by-force-annexed, islands of Andaman and Nicobar. Most other territories; 552 Princely states, British suzerainty states, were coaxed to join Independent India. Simultaneously, through a combination of threats, blackmail, trickery and military mean. India acquired de facto control over the remaining colonial enclaves and the princely states. This is how all Independent territories were integrated into India. 

Around 1930 Indian National Congress termed the non-integration of independent princely states; for, the British Empire had no legal or constitutional rights to transfer their allegiances to Independent India, as the “Balkanization”. {Which seems a matter of time now, anyway!}

Lord MountbattenSardar Vallabhbhai Patel and V. P Menon were the three perpetrators; of the present illegitimate/fragile; botched union and insatiably expansionist India; which Modi has set on; the beginning of an inevitable end; accelerated disintegration, by illegally abrogating (Article 370) the protected status of Kashmir! 

Union territories without legislative bodies:

Union territories with legislative bodies:

Former union territories: [ given “Statehood” protection under article 370, but after its illegal abrogation and the annexation of Kashmir, are now worried about losing it]

Five of these states (marked with*) along with Meghalaya and Assam have, therefore, already demanded independence from India.

Any union territoryalready having legislative body in place. would render the Indian president incapable of mandating any law or rule, under Article 240 of the Indian constitution, for this UT.

India’s worsening financial straits.

According to the current deteriorating financial situation of the Indian economy, it seems like the repeat of the Soviet Union’s economic melt-down before its collapse. The Indian Navy Chief is complaining about the lack of funds. The Indian army chief is complaining about vintage [40 years old] aircraft. Soldiers, in general, complain about poor/insufficient food and clothing. Under such conditionsone must commend those, who call India, A Shining India?

Conclusion: Coaxing-tactics used in the integration of the princely states; administrative units; with all too OBVIOUS legal loopholes in botched Independent India; India became an illegitimate and highly fragile state, destined to disintegrate/balkanize, which Modi has unwittingly triggered by illegally abrogating (Article-370) the protected status of IO-Kashmir.
