Deferment of hearing on Art 35A not a solution: Mehbooba
SRINAGAR, Aug 6: Former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti today said deferment of hearing on Article 35A which bars non-state subjects to buy property in Jammu and Kashmir is not a solution.

“Even though the deferment of hearing on Article 35A is not a solution, it has brought interim relief to the people of J&K. But with uncertainty looming over its status, it has unleashed a wave of anxiety and panic amongst the people of J&K,” Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.

The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned hearing of petitions challenging the validity of Article 35A, which guarantees special privileges to the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The matter will be taken up by a 3-judge bench on August 27 to determine whether the matter is required to be referred to a 5-judge Bench.

The Supreme Court said the petitions challenging Article 35A validity will be listed before a 3-judge bench in the week starting August 27 and that bench would determine whether the matter is required to be referred to a 5-judge bench.

CJI deferred the case since one of the judges, Justice Chandrachud was absent from the court on Monday.
