Omar Abdullah vs J&K Lieutenant Governor as SC announces 370 verdict

Leaders of National Conference and PDP posted pictures of locks on the gates of their houses in Kashmir and claimed that they have been put under house arrest ahead of the Supreme Court's verdict on abrogation of Article 370.

J&K Lieutenant Goveror Manoj Sinha denied the claims and said it is an attempt to spread rumours. He said no one has been put under house arrest or been arrested due to political reasons.

Reacting to Sinha's comments, NC leader Omar Abdullah posted pictures of his gates and said 'Dear Mr LG these chains that have been put on my gate have not been put by me so why are you denying what your police force has done. It’s also possible you don’t even know what your police is doing? Which one is it? Are you being dishonest or is your police acting independent of you?'

upheld the government's decision to abrogate Article 370, which bestowed special status on the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, and said steps should be taken to conduct elections in the assembly by September 30 next year.

Writing the judgement for himself and Justices Gavai and Surya Kant, Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud said Article 370 of the Constitution was a temporary provision and the president has the power to revoke it.

The apex court also upheld the validity of the decision to carve out the union territory of Ladakh from Jammu and Kashmir in August 2019.

The erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir does not have internal sovereignty different from other states of the country, he said.
