Article 370, 35(A) abrogation: Supreme Court issues notice to centre

Article 370
Article 370

As the vibes of aggression and disinterest still continue due to the abrogation of Article 370 and 35(A), few petitions were come up into the notice of Supreme court onto which the court has responded.

On referring to the petitions challenged on the abrogation decision on Jammu and Kashmir, the five-judge constitution bench has responded to it. The top court has issued notices to the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir administration on the batch of pleas that challenges the presidential order revoking Article 370 and 35(A).

Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi who heads the bench was not in agreement with centre on the issuance of notices as there is no need of it as Attorney General K K Venugopal and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta was present in the court.

The bench, also comprising justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer said that “We will refer the matter to a five-judge Constitution bench”.

The counsel that are appearing for both sides were involved in the arguments and bench of judges further said, “We know what to do, we have passed the order, we are not going to change.”
