Malik like Vohra too supports deferment of case on Article 35-A
8/29/2018 10:43:44 PM
Governor Malik too follows Vohra as far as supporting deferment of the case on Article 35-A which is to come up for hearing soon. Since Malik fears violence if the Apex Court supports abrogation of Article 35-A-The debate on the controversial Article 35-A has assumed not only legal tones but political dimensions with Kashmir centric politicians supporting its retention. Yes there are some prominent citizens of Kashmir who want the state Legislature or the President of India to amend some controversial part of the Article which includes loss of citizenship rights if she marries a nonstate subject. But this condition does not apply to men which indicates that Article 35-A is partial to women. If people from Bihar and UP can come and work in Jammu and Kashmir in the private sector why cannot educated people from outside the state seek employment in State Government department ? These are some controversial issues but the Kashmir centric politicians are determined to retain the Article. But the members of the civil society from Jammu have voiced their concern over the continuation of Article 35 -A. These members have asked the political leadership in the centre to secure abrogation of Article 370 when there is nothing left in this Article. And already several hundred laws enacted by the Parliament have been extended to Jammu and Kashmir though with the approval of the state Legislature.
And those settled in Jammu for the last 60 years have not been given citizenship rights with the result they cannot vote for the Assembly but as citizens of India they would vote for the Lok Sabha poll. These unfortunates cannot seek admission to their wards in the schools colleges and Institutions run by the state Government. That is why people of Jammu region want to abrogate Article 370 and 35-A. Newly appointed Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Satyapal Malik has called on President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi here and held brief discussions with them. Official sources at Rashtrapati Bhavan and Prime Minister's Office described the discussions as a courtesy call by the J&K Governor following his taking charge of the state. The Governor also met his predecessor NN Vohra and discussed matters concerning the state. Jammu and Kashmir is currently under the Governor's rule and Malik is seen by many as a political appointee unlike his predecessors.
The change of Governor notwithstanding, the state government will press for the deferment of hearing into the petitions challenging the validity of Article 35A of the Constitution, citing the forthcoming panchayat elections. As the matter is slated to come up before the Supreme Court on August 31, sources said the lawyers representing the J&K Government had been given "instructions" to seek the adjournment of the hearing into the matter. Even the former Governor, N.N. Vohra too had supported deferment of the case. He too also referred to the ensuing Panchayat and ULB elections. It was his and his successor's opinion that any decision by the apex court could assume alarming law and problem which may wreck the Panchayat and ULB elections.
