Early Times Report

Srinagar, Aug 31: Amid high tension in Jammu & Kashmir, the Supreme Court today adjourned hearing on a batch of pleas challenging the constitutional validity of Article 35-A, till January which gives special rights and privileges to people of Jammu and Kashmir.
"The Supreme court was informed that the haring may affect the local bodies and Panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir. Now the apex court has listed the matter for hearing on the 19 of January 2019" sources told Early Times.
It is to mention here that the J&K Government on Wednesday approached the Supreme Court seeking adjournment of the August 31 hearing on the petitions challenging the validity of Article 35A of the Constitution, citing upcoming local elections in the state.
In the letter, which was circulated on Wednesday by J&K's Standing Counsel M Shoeb Alam before the Registrar, Supreme Court of India, adjournment has been sought on account of the ongoing preparations for the upcoming panchayat and municipal elections in the state. "The undersigned will be seeking an adjournment in the aforementioned matter on August 31, 2018, on account of the ongoing preparations for the upcoming panchayat and municipal elections in the state. This letter may kindly be circulated to the honourable judges so as to avoid any inconvenience to them in reading their briefs," the letter had said. On August 3, when NN Vohra headed the state administration as the Governor, a similar letter was addressed to the Registrar by the Standing Counsel seeking an adjournment in the five petitions that were scheduled to be heard on August 6 on similar grounds.
Article 35 A of the Constitution, which provides protection to the hereditary state subject law, gives the J&K Legislature the power to decide who are permanent residents of the state.
