The Governor-ruled administration in Jammu and Kashmir has sought the adjournment of hearing on Article 35A, which is expected to come up in the Supreme Court this week.

Satyapal Malik is the Governor.

The plea seeks to put the rumours over a possible verdict on the validity of the said Article, as crackdown on rebel leaders continued amid growing tension.

J&K government spokesperson Rohit Kansal is quoted as saying that “only an elected government would be able to take a stand on Article 35A before the Supreme Court.”
