Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) Peoples Conference, which is part of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), on Monday sought the early hearing of the petitions challenging the abrogation of Article 370 and J&K Reorganisation Act in the supreme court. Soon after the nullification of articles 370 and 35A, several petitions were filed in the supreme court by different political parties, civil society groups and individuals challenging the decision. “J&K Peoples Conference moves SC, seeks early hearing of a batch of Petitions challenging abrogation of Article 370 & reorganisation of J&K,” tweeted J&K Peoples Conference. The spokesman of Peoples Conference Adnan Ashraf said the application has stated that the petitioners have made out a very strong prima facie case and the issues raised are being considered by a constitution bench of this court. National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah said the decision seeking early hearing on the petitions was taken by PAGD leadership. “As decided in the recent meeting of the People’s Alliance we are seeking early hearings in this matter so that the petitions challenging 5th Aug 2019 move forward,” tweeted Omar Abdullah. On 5 August 2019, the Government of India rescinded the special status of J&K in the parliament.
