Supreme Court refuses to intervene in J&K bifurcationtext_fields
New Delhi: A Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to intervene in the implementation of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act of 2019, which bifurcates Jammu and Kashmir into Union Territories: Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
After realizing that the Centre and the J&K government didn’t file any response to petitions challenging abrogation of Article 370, the bench led by Justice N V Raman wound up the hearing.
The Supreme Court issued notice to both Centre and State government in the petition filed by advocate M.L Sharma on August 28.
On Tuesday, Attorney General K.K. Venugopal sought more time to file the replies for the Centre.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta requested the same for the J&K government as well. Agreeing their request, the court posted the next hearing on November 14.
