The BJP is a part of the ruling alliance in J&K where it has partnered the PDP.
Article 35 A has come under focus after two Kashmiri women approached the Supreme Court and challenged it. They contended that it had disenfranchised their children.
The Supreme Court on October 30 deferred the hearing on challenge to the Constitution’s Article 35A granting special rights to natives of Jammu and Kashmir as the Central government told the court that it may have implications for the dialogue being held by its interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma to find solution to the state’s troubled situation.
The bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud adjourned the matter for eight weeks as Attorney General KK Venugopal told the court that the Centre’s special representative was holding dialogue with different stakeholders to find some solution and if hearing on the challenge to Article 35A takes place, then it will have some effect.
