New Delhi, February 19, 2019 (PPI-OT): The Supreme Court of India has said that it would consider a plea seeking urgent listing of a petition challenging the validity of Articles 35A and 370 of the Indian Constitution, which give special status to Jammu and Kashmir and its permanent citizens.
A Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi, asked BJP leader, advocate Ashwini Upadhyay to give the mentioning memo to the Registrar. “We will see it,” he told him after Upadhyay denuded urgent hearing of his petition.
Upadhyay told the bench that the matter was of extreme importance and needed to be listed for hearing at the earliest. The petitioner urged the top court to declare that the separate Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir was arbitrary and unconstitutional on various grounds.
