People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday expressed her apprehension over Supreme Court’s decision to hold daily hearings of pleas challenging the abrogation of Article 370 “after remaining silent for four years.”

Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court decided to hear on a day-to-day basis from August 2 a batch

of petitions challenging the Centre’s August 5, 2019, decision to scrap special status under Article 370 of Jammu & Kashmir.

Mufti took to twitter to express her apprehension.

“…SCs decision to not rely on GOIs affidavit vindicates that it doesnt have a logical explanation to justify illegal abrogation of Article 370. Having said that there are legitimate apprehensions about why SC has taken up the Article 370 with such alacrity after their visit to Kashmir. After remaining silent for four years the decision to hear the case on a daily basis does evoke misgivings,” she said.

“Hope the constitution of this country by which judiciary swears is not sacrificed at the altar of power to satisfy collective conscience of people who know little about the matter,” she added..
