The Supreme Court has been requested to hear the case on the petition contesting the repeal of Article 370 as soon as possible

A plea has been brought before the Supreme Court requesting an early listening on a suit questioning the constitutional legitimacy of the Presidential order amending and rendering the provisions of Article 370 ineffective, effectively stripping Jammu and Kashmir of its unique status.

The CPI (M) leader MY Tarigami submitted an early hearing appeal to challenge the presidential decree, asking the court to pronounce the alteration unconstitutional since it infringes on fundamental rights, notably Articles 21 and 14 of the Indian Constitution.

The petitions were assigned to a five-judge bench by then-Chairman of the Supreme Court of India, Ranjan Gogoi, in August of this year. On March 2, 2020, the matter was last heard in front of a Full Bench led by then-Chief Justice S.A. Bobde.

Sanjay Kishan Kaul, R. Subhash Reddy, B.R. Gavai, and Surya Kant are the other four judges of the Constitution Bench.
