In a fresh affidavit filed on Monday, the Centre staunchly defended its decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir in 2019. With the Supreme Court set to begin hearing petitions challenging the move, the Centre argued that the region has experienced unprecedented stability and progress since the decision was implemented.

The affidavit highlighted the cessation of stone-pelting incidents and a significant decline in terrorist recruitment as indicators of the positive impact of the decision. The Centre emphasized the steps taken to promote peace, development, and security in the region, stating that it has brought about historic stability and progress.

Ahead of the Supreme Court hearing on petitions challenging the abrogation of Article 370, the Centre filed an affidavit justifying its decision. The affidavit emphasized the comprehensive growth, development, and progress witnessed in Jammu and Kashmir, stating that the region stands as a testament to parliamentary wisdom.

The Centre highlighted the strengthening of grassroots democracy and the enjoyment of equal rights by all residents. It also noted the significant increase in tourist visits and the return of normalcy after decades of turmoil. The five-judge bench, led by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud, is set to hear the case and determine the hearing schedule.

The petitions challenge the Presidential Order of August 5, 2019, which revoked Article 370 and led to the reorganization of the state into the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. The petitioners include lawyers, activists, politicians, and retired civil servants.
