Abrogation of Article 370 irreversible, terrorists trained by Pak trying to create havoc in J-K': Centre to SC

New Delhi, Jan 23: The Central government on Thursday told the Supreme Court the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir is ‘irreversible’, adding that allowed the accession of the state to the Union of India. The government further told the apex court that terrorists trained by Pakistan are trying to create ‘unrest’ in the Valley.
The court was hearing a clutch of petitions challenging various aspects of Article 370, which was abrogated by the government in August last year. A five-judge bench, which included Justices NV Ramana, SK Kaul, R Subhash Reddy, BR Gavai and Surya Kant, was hearing the petitions. Appearing for the government, Attorney General KK Venugopal, submitted how accession of the new Union Territory to Indian union took place and said that ‘it (abrogation of Article 370) is irreversible’.
“The purpose for this story of integration of the Indian states is to show the consolidation of the country. I want to show that the sovereignty of Jammu and Kashmir was indeed temporary. We are a Union of States,” Venugopal told the bench.
Venugopal further told the bench that terrorists trained by Pakistan are trying to create havoc in the Jammu and Kashmir.
“The Maharaja had entered into a Standstill Agreement with Pakistan and Pakistan had in fact violated this. Truckloads of tribesmen trained in combat were sent by Pakistan to overtake the state. Maharaja had asked for the aid of India due to the insurgents present in the state. There were criminal activities taking place and records even suggest that these separatists trained by Pakistan had been specially sent to create havoc,” Venugopal said.
Advocate Dr Rajeev Dhavan -- who was appearing for the petitioners -- told the court that a state was demoted to the status of a Union Territory using Article 3 of the Constitution of India for the first time and if the government can do it for one State, they can also do it for any State.
He further said that the Central government deliberately imposed President's Rule in the erstwhile state and pointed to a map of Jammu and Kashmir.
However, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who was representing Jammu and Kashmir, interrupted Dhavan and said that ‘what he is saying is irrelevant’.
To this Dhavan said, “If Attorney General could bring (JL) Nehru in his historical trip, I can surely show milords a map. I do not have to take your permission.”
The Supreme Court on Wednesday also heard petitions which were filed after the central government scrapped Article 370 in August last year and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories -- Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
