J&K seeks adjournment of hearing on plea challenging the resettlement Act of 1982

NEW DELHI: Jammu and Kashmir on Monday sought adjournment of the Supreme Court hearing on a plea challenging the validity of the sensitive J&K Resettlement Act of 1982, saying that there is no elected Government at present in the State which is under the President’s rule.

It said that since the challenge is to the State Legislature enactment, it would be appropriate if the hearing was done when the elected Government is in place.

The reason was given in a letter circulated among the parties in the case by the State administration. (AGENCIES)
