Releasing the book Shri Arun Kumar described the book as a reference book of that period. “The book provides very vital information about the situation of the period from 1953 to 1954. He said after the sacrifice of Dr Mookerjee the process of J&K integration began and today 264 of the total 394 Articles of the Constitution are applicable on J&K. In those days it had been decided to hoist the Indian tricolour only at two occasions and now the tricolour is hoisted on every occasion.
