“Rely On The Govt. And Give Them Some Time”- Supreme Court

Article 370/ “Govt. Should Be Given Time for Return of Normalcy in J&K”- Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has refused to pass any immediate order to lift restrictions in J&K imposed after the abrogation of Article 370.

In response to a petition, seeking lifting of all restrictions imposed after the withdrawal of Article 370, the apex court said that it would wait for the return of normalcy and take up the matter after two weeks.

The Supreme Court adjourned Congress activist Tehseen Poonawala’s plea on the Centre’s decision to impose restrictions and “other regressive measures” in Jammu and Kashmir following the revocation of special status to the Himalayan state.

The withdrawal of “Other regressive measures” in the plea included ‘curfew, restrictions’ and blocking of phone lines, internet and news channels in J&K.

Poonawala had also challenged the detention of former chief ministers Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and Sajjad Lone who were arrested on August 5.

During the hearing, the bench also comprising Justices M R Shah and Ajay Rastogi, said the present situation in Jammu and Kashmir was “very sensitive” and some time should be given for bringing back normalcy in the region.

As per reports, the Centre told the bench that they are reviewing the situation in the region on a day-to-day basis.

“We have to ensure that law and order situation in Jammu and Kashmir is maintained,” Attorney General KK Venugopal, who appeared for the Centre,  told the bench.

The bench also said that it should be ensured that there is no loss of life there.

Since the repeal of Article 370, Jammu and Kashmir has been under an unprecedented security cover and prohibitory orders that ban large gatherings.
