SC castigates lawyer for baffling petition against Article 370’s revocation, says it has no clarity
NEW DELHI: Coming down heavily on lawyer ML Sharma’s petition against Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, the Supreme Court on Friday warned that his plea was incomprehensible and had no annexure. “What is your petition? You have filed a rubbish petition on such an important matter. There is no clarity on it. I read your petition for more than half-an-hour but still could not fathom out what it was all about,” said Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.
The government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi had removed Article 370 and Article 35A from Jammu and Kashmir which ended its special status. Sharma had moved the apex court claiming the notification abrogating the Articles were unconstitutional and the Centre’s decision was arbitrary.
