Pennews

The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to give urgent hearing to a petition challenging the Presidential Order revoking Article 370 of the Constitution which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Petitioner advocate ML Sharma, mentioned it before a Bench headed by Justice NV Ramana for urgent listing.

'There is urgency. Pakistan is going to move the UN,' Sharma told the Bench.

"Do you think the UN will stay a constitutional amendment by India,' the Bench shot back and advised him to approach Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.

Sharma contended that the presidential order was "illegal, unconstitutional, and void ab initio/I and ultra vires to the Constitution of India" as it was passed without taking consent of the State Assembly.
