[Just as crucially] the order had come about only after the jammu and kashmir government had agreed to it and passed a similar legislation in its own assembly making it clear these powers were jammu and kashmir's to give and not india's to take.

A comma can be inserted after "crucially".

Crucially has its usual dictionary meaning: "very important"
