Article 35A Denied Jammu and Kashmir Non-Residents

Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud made a significant statement at the Article 370 hearing in front of the Supreme Court. During the hearing, he said that Article 35-A had stripped citizens of numerous essential rights. Citizens’ rights to work, equal opportunity, and property ownership in Jammu and Kashmir have been taken away.

The CJI made this remark during the 11th day of the hearing on the petitions contesting the repeal of Article 370.

The CJI said that all citizens should have equal access to employment opportunities and appointments to positions under the state, as well as the ability to purchase real estate and work for the state government. The citizens are robbed of all this by this essay. This is also the case because these were the residents’ only rights and were not included in those of non-residents. He asserted that the Government of India is a single entity as defined by the Indian Constitution. The Government of India is a perpetual entity.

In response to the petitioner’s arguments, the Solicitor General stated that since Article 35A was repealed, investment and tourism have begun in Jammu and Kashmir due to the establishment of a police system close to the city center. Approximately 16 lakh tourists have visited Jammu and Kashmir since the system was changed. In the region, new hotels have opened. A significant number of people are employed.
