Omar Abdullah, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and vice-president of the National Conference, has said that the Supreme Court should immediately hear the petitions challenging the abolition of Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution.
Taking part in the The Indian Express idea exchange program, Omar said, “It is not that the Supreme Court is not working. We have seen that it has interfered in the case of the farmers. In the case of farmers, if the Supreme The court can say that it does not appear that there was any consultation with the farmers, so no consultations were taken from Jammu and Kashmir before August 5, 2019. The Supreme Court needs to be seen on the same scale What had happened in Jammu and Kashmir and they should start hearing. And we should have the opportunity to change their minds with our pleas. “
Omar Abdullah said, ‘We have seen that the Supreme Court took cognizance of the peasant movement and interfered. The Supreme Court also said that no one was consulted before enacting the law. Similarly, no decision was taken in the decision taken in Jammu and Kashmir on 5 August 2019. Therefore, the Supreme Court should start hearing immediately on this issue and we should also include it in the judgment.
Omar Abdullah said that he had full faith in the Supreme Court. Abdullah said that the Supreme Court had said in its remarks that everything can be changed if it comes to law. But it will not be possible to change much after a time.
Abdullah said, ‘As time passes many people will be given the right to live in Jammu and Kashmir. People will be posted in administrative positions. The policeman will be made wild. Then people will say that a lot of water has flowed in the Jhelum. Now this is the reality. But we do not want to accept it. ‘
Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi issued notice on August 29, 2019 and referred the matter to the bench of five judges. The bench of five judges heard on October 1, 2019, but at the same time some people appealed to be sent to the bench of seven judges. The court rejected this demand in March 2020, but there was no hearing in the case since then.
