Restoration of complete statehood in Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir will take some time: Centre to SC hearing Article 370 matter

Sr Adv Kapil Sibal: if you have 5,000 people in house arrest and withs section 144 imposed there cannot be any bandh.. so let us not get into this… otherwise we have to counter all of this

CJI: What he is saying that roadmap to full statehood will take some time.. UT is not a permanent feature and there cannot be a timeline.. but these are the steps they are taking.. but we know these facts cannot be an answer to the constitutional question

Sibal: the drugs issue which is plaguing J&K is enormous and there is enormous rate of unemployment in the UT.

Sibal: problem is this is being televised… and all of this is on record.. they make it like look what all govt is doing..

SG: Development is never a problem…

CJI: The constitutional issue will be dealt only with the constitutional angle and not on the basis of the policy decisions..

SG: My friend says some are under house arrest and that is why no bandh… so correct people are under the house arrest..

Sibal: 5000 were under house arrest let us not make a mockery of democracy.. section 144 was imposed and internet was shut off… this court has recognised all of this as well.. people could not go to hospitals even.. let us not talk about bandhs etc.
